“A paradigm shift in my understanding of finance and economics” – Clinical Directors and Lead Clinicians – The King’s Fund

I’ve worked with The King’s Fund for many years, delivering the finance elements of their board and senior leader programmes, including for medical directors and GP commissioners. It was a pleasure to present the Clinical Directors and Lead Clinicians Programme for The King’s Fund. It’s fascinating to look at how little we all know about the workings of the UK economy and to compare that to our knowledge of the economic workings of our own individual NHS organisations.
