Costing Advisory Group

To support the implementation and delivery of the Costing Transformation Programme, Monitor runs a Costing Advisory Group.

Role of the Costing Advisory Group

The group advises Monitor on the implementation of the Costing Transformation Programme, including:

  • the overall direction and evidence for the Costing Transformation Programme
  • the development of costing standards
  • the development of costing software minimum requirements
  • the development of cost collection and benchmarking processes

The Costing Transformation Programme aims to improve the quality of costing information in the NHS, with patient-level costing and a single, national annual cost collection.


The group contains a range of stakeholders from across the healthcare sector with the skills and experience to meaningfully advise on the implementation of the Costing Transformation Programme.
