“This was an excellent course, set at the right level, delivered with empathy and humour.” – The NHS Budget Holder’s Survival Guide – Nottingham
Another great day running The Budget Holder’s Survival Guide – this time in Nottingham for a mixed group of NHS staff.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):
“Excellent workshop. Pitched at right level. Excellent presentation and elements well explained to understand different aspects of finance.” – Adam Millington, Specialist Pharmacist, Nottingham University Hospitals
“This was an excellent course, set at the right level, delivered with empathy and humour. Very clear. If I had met David earlier in my career I would have become an accountant!” – Rosalie Keane, Lead Physiotherapist, UHLT
“Genuinely one of the most useful courses I have been on in a long time. Thank you!” – Jon Rouston, Head of Service, Lincolnshire Community Health Service
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 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.
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
Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG – Budget Holders Manual
