Another great day at 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust running The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide. To make NHS organisations financially stable there has to be a fundamental shift in the culture of financial responsibility within the NHS. To achieve this cultural change budget holders need to take responsibility for the financial position of their part of the organisation, but in order to have responsibilities they need to have some rights too. In The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide training day I take budget holders through all the rights and responsibilities and skills and knowledge to improve services to patients, clients and service users.
