I presented at the Ward Manager Summit – Developing your skills as an Effective Ward Manager, for current and aspiring Ward Managers / Ward Sisters / Charge Nurses and Senior Nurses on Monday 6 February 2017 at the De Vere West One Conference Centre, London.

  • ensuring you use finance as a resource by building on your relationship with your accountant
  • finding out the financial rules which govern your management of budgets
  • taking time to review how your ward is running from a business and financial perspective
