Another great day at 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Trust running The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide. I was originally commissioned to run only two events but word of mouth spread and I’ve now run 16 events and trained hundreds of budget holders within the organisation, including many consultant psychiatrists.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):
“Found it very interesting and very relevant.” – Caroline Stuart, Team Manager / Professional Lead – Admin
“Good case studies.” – Ben Walton, Head of Performance
“Good. Should be given to all Consultants as well as Registrars.” – Raj Magdala
“Very interesting and informative – really enjoyed the course.” – Peter Simpson, Learning and Development Manager
“The training was much easier to understand than my experiences of previous budget training.” – Debbie Kelly, Team Manager
“Enjoyable – in a language that I understand. Thank you.” – Barbara Hughes, Team Manager
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. It was a pleasure to have your company.
