AWP Finance team looks to the future
In January 2014, the six heads of the
finance profession in the NHS came together to initiate Future
Focused Finance which offers a vision for NHS finance to aspire to
over the next five years.
Future Focused Finance is about 'Making People Count'. That
includes everyone who works in finance, in every role at every
level, those we work with to deliver services and the service users
and communities that use and support those services.
The initiative focuses on three key themes or aims:
1. Securing Excellence (Best possible value; Efficient systems
2. Knowing the Business (Close partnering ; Skills and
3. Fulfilling our Potential (Great place to work; Foundations
for sustained improvement)
Earlier this week, the AWP Finance team gathered together for a
day of discussion and presentations on this subject and other
pressing matters. During the day, Director of Resources, Sue Hall
signed a declaration that we would adopt the principles of the
initiative (see photo), while members of the Finance team shared
their thoughts via a short podcast.
