GovernWell: NHS finance and business skills module, London
Date: 26 March 2020
This one day specialist course will use interactive learning methods to help governors learn more about the detail of a provider's finances and business operations, viewed specifically in the context of the governor role. It will look at funding flows, analysing financial information and asking questions of the financial reports, along with external factors which impact the way governors work with their trusts.
What will governors gain?
- a better understanding of financial flows in the NHS and the financial context in which foundation trusts operate
- an improved appreciation of income / expenditure, cost improvement plans, and possible strategies to support organisation health
- an understanding of the NHS as a "business" and considered the role of competition
- a better understanding of the governor role in mergers and acquisitions.
