Another great day running The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide in Essex.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):
“Thanks so much for your effort and humour. I thought you were brilliant, probably the best trainer I’ve ever had.” – Helena Falise, Health Trainer Coordinator, Anglian Community Enterprise CIC
“Each item was fully described in easy language.” – Karen Stimpson, Anglian Community Enterprise CIC
“Would recommend to all budget holders. It should be compulsory training for holders!” – Lorna Dewar, Oncology Trials Manager, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust
“This is more than worth my 2 hour drive from Stevenage I would have gladly paid to attend this workshop (out of my own pocket).” – MJ Cruz, Community Lead, Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
“Was prepared for a boring day, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Good discussion and interaction with a smattering of humour.” – Hazel Fox, Operational Manager Day Services, North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
“Great use of humour made day enjoyable.” – Penny Rogers, Head of Safeguarding, North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
It’s always interesting to see how staff’s confidence in interpreting financial reports can be transformed in just a day. I’ve spent two decades doing 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.
Many thanks to everyone involved.
