NHS Meeting Cost Estimator (Android App)

Disclaimer: The information contained on this page forms part of my GPC CPD portfolio and is therefore my personal opinion and in no way reflects the opinion or policy of my employer.
This was my first attempt at creating an Android App. The idea behind this App was to create a business productivity tool that would assist in estimating the salary cost of an NHS meeting. The cost estimations were based on the published NHS pay band scales (available at NHS Employers). For each band I used the second point on the scale to estimate the wage cost of a meeting where the number of participants at each given NHS pay band was known. An option within the application settings allows you to determine whether or not London waiting applies to the calculation. I was quite pleased with the App, especially when used on a tablet sized device. I added a Timer so it is possible to view a “live” estimation of a meeting cost. The application also provides the functionality to email meeting details to an email address.
