It was a pleasure to welcome 40 consultants and senior psychiatrists in Bolton for a challenging day looking at NHS Finance in a Nutshell. We took a Google Earth journey from the biggest picture possible of the whole of the UK Government’s finances down to the detail of an individual payment for an individual service user.
