Costing report

A costing report has been produced to assess the financial impact for health and social care organisations of implementing the guidance in England. The report focuses on the recommendations that require the most resources to implement or will generate the biggest savings. The cost and activity assessments in the report are estimates based on a number of assumptions. These assessments provide an indication of the likely impact and are not absolute figures.

The report has been prepared in consultation with experts working in this area and the company/sponsor where appropriate. It has been approved for publication by NICE.

This resource is an implementation tool and should be used alongside the published guidance. The information does not supersede or replace the guidance itself.

The Institute would welcome feedback from users to inform the development of future templates. Please email your comments to
