This is the second event bringing together the West Midlands branch HFMA and HPMA members to tackle the joint challenges between finance and HR staff in the NHS.
Who should attend?
Any person who wishes to learn more about the mechanics of HR and Finance within the NHS is welcome to join this event. Delegates from providers, commissioners, authorising bodies, HEE and any other healthcare organisation are welcome to attend. You are only able to book 2 people (1 HR and 1 finance) per organisation unless the event does not fill up.
How will I benefit?
You will gain a more well-rounded knowledge of your colleagues and their roles, thus improving your understanding of the healthcare system and how to collaborate within it. Current affairs which affect both finance and HR staff will be covered, and you will have a chance to engage in a progressive discussion about these.
