Osteoarthritis: costing report
A costing report and template has been produced by NICE to provide implementation tools to consider the financial impact of implementing the clinical guideline CG059 - Osteoarthritis.
The costing report focuses on the recommendations that require most change in resources to implement in England. The report has been prepared in consultation with the guideline development group, and other clinicians working in this area and has been approved for publication by the Institute. It should be noted that the activity assessments in the report are based on a number of assumptions. These assessments provide an indication of the likely impact of the principal recommendations and are not absolute figures.
As part of this work, a costing template has been developed to provide health communities with the ability to assess the likely local impact of the principal recommendations in the clinical guideline based on local population. Other assumptions can be altered to better reflect local circumstances.
The Institute would welcome feedback to inform the development of future costing tools. Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
