Hull is a fantastic city, with a wonderful Museum Quarter, its spectacular aquarium, The Deep, and great shopping and dining at every corner. Today was The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide run for Finance Skills Development in Yorkshire and the Humber. Fifteen delegates went through all the essential information they need to feel confident and competent to manage their budgets effectively to improve patient care.
Feedback and evaluation is an essential part of providing management development events. Here’s the initial reaction of delegates from today’s workshop:
