“Great presentation – engaging, fun, well explained.” – The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide, Chelmsford

The NHS Budget Holder's Survival Guide

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

Comments from the Day

“Great presentation – engaging, fun, well explained. Thank you for the calculator.” – Martyn Firth, Team Leader, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust

“Really comprehensive.” – Graham Caunce, Change Project Manager, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

“Informative, useful, took a lot of ‘mystery’ out of the ‘spaghetti’.” – Jane Mooney, Sister, Gynaecology

“Excellent day. Delivery of potentially boring content was fabulous, keep everyone engaged all day.” – Vanessa Thorpe, Senior Registered Nurse

“I really enjoyed today and feel so much more confident. Thanks ever so much.” – Nicola Foreman, Clinical Lead for Children’s Occupational Therapy. Cambridgeshire Community Services


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
