Another great day at 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Trust running The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide. I was originally commissioned to run a handful of events but word of mouth spread and I’ve now trained almost every budget holder within the organisation.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):
“Extremely informative and an essential course for inexperienced budget holders.” – Melanie Whitehead, Learning and Development Facilitator
“Liked the calculator! Good use of +1. Really good course – thank you for making the finance course interesting and relevant.” – Lesley Pennington, Assistant Company Secretary
“I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot.” – Nieves Mercadillo, Associate Medical Director
“Clear and detailed – excellent.” – Pam Tinsley, Ops Manager
“I didn’t know finance could be so interesting for a full days training.” – Robert O’Connor, Manager Community Health
“Very well delivered – thanks!” – J Wilson, Clinical Lead
“Excellent course, enlightening!” – Gill Dickson, Advanced Musculoskeletal Practitioner
“A must for all managers. Well delivered. Difficult concepts were explained very well in a way anyone could understand.” – Nanda Dayalan, Lead Consultant
It’s always interesting to see how staff’s confidence in interpreting financial reports can be transformed in just a day. I’ve spent two decades doing finance training within the NHS and have developed a Seven Step Method for interpreting financial reports using seven questions, making three calculations and taking no more than 15 minutes. It works every time.
Many thanks to everyone involved.
