“Your personality and wit coupled with your vast expertise shone through.” – The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide – Cambourne

The NHS Budget Holder's Survival Guide

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

It’s essential to have a Budgetary Control Policy within your organisation if you’re going to have clear standards of financial support and clear policies for financial practice. Examples of Budgetary Control Policies include:

Lincolnshire Partnership – Budgetary Control Manual
The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust – Budgetary Control Policy
