The NHS Budget Holder's Survival Guide

Many thanks to everyone who attended The Budget Holder’s Survival Guide in Lowestoft 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.
