Our Close Partnering for PLICS team is dedicated to one goal. Ensuring value is gained from costing for all stakeholders.

Too often Patient Level Costing implementations fall short of delivering to their potential as internal resources and expertise gets stretched.

We already see increasing regulatory requirements diverting resource away from adding value to the Trust’s performance and cost-model improvements taking a back seat as the need to “just get it out there” increases. With key personnel having to focus on local specific issues and fire-fighting, rather than developing the model and improving the process and information for end users, there is little opportunity to improve or add new patient level data when appropriate and available.

By partnering with Bellis-Jones Hill you get the insights and focused dedication from some of the most experienced PLICS consultants working in the NHS.
