An Appreciation of NHS Finance

An Appreciation of NHS Finance is a conference I have run in Yorkshire and the Humber for several years.

40 delegates spend a busy day learning all the basics of NHS Finance and how it relates to the service from the biggest areas of UK Government finance to the smallest areas of NHS finance. Here are some of the delegate comments from the evaluations (reproduced with kind written permission from each delegate):

“David very engaging and interesting speaker.” – Val Doughty, Assistant Service Manager, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
