Many thanks to everyone who attended The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide in Colchester today.
It’s always interesting to see how people’s confidence in interpreting financial reports can be transformed in just a day. I’ve spent two decades delivering 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.
It’s essential to have a Budgetary Control Policy within your organisation if you’re going to have clear standards of financial support and clear policies for financial practice. Examples of Budgetary Control Policies include:
“Well worth the time out of a really busy schedule.” – Lucy Keam-george, General Manager Women and Children, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
“Found references to real examples very helpful in consolidating information.” – Sarra Bargent, CHC Lead Nurse, North East Essex CCG
“I think that the content and methodology was absolutely right for the course. Enjoyable, thught-provoking with some very useful tools and techniques.” – Andrew Eley, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, West Suffolk CCG
“Excellent workshop – David’s style is informative, stimulating and fun! Thank you!” – James Curren, General Manager, Emergency Services, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
“An extremely valuable and informative day. I have been doing this for many years but have learned a lot today.” – Stephen Griffiths, Divisional General Manager, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Trust
Many thanks to everyone who made the day so successful.
