GovernWell: NHS finance and business skills module - Newcastle
Date 11 July 2019
This one day specialist course will help governors learn more about the detail of a provider's finances and their business operations, through a range of interactive learning methods and shared experience.
The course looks at funding flows, analysing financial information and asking questions of the financial reports. We will explore the external factors influencing a provider's operations and how they might respond strategically - including making decisions on increasing non-NHS income and significant transactions, viewed specifically within the context of the governor role.
