Workforce planning is such an overlooked and under-appreciated discipline. It’s the sort of essential background service that only gets noticed when something goes horribly wrong. Thanks to the skills and dedication of NHS workforce planners that very seldom happens. It was fascinating to spend the day with an excellent group of people who were endlessly curious about why finance do the things they do and what the two disciplines could do to better co-ordinate services to managers and to each other.
“Everything was very useful for setting the context for my work area. Will pay more attention to budget reports in future. An excellent day, thank you. All staff should attend!!! Workshop design balanced very well between listening and exercises. Well paced and I appreciate the good timekeeping. Thanks!” – Kim Montacute, Knowledge Services Manager, NHS Yorkshire and the Humber SHA
“Really good and engaging. Would be good to get finance colleagues to attend.” – Nicky Mozzo Zolezzi, Contracts and Performance Manager, NHS Yorkshire and the Humber SHA
