Healthcare Finance stars of the year named at HFMA’s annual awards
The Finance Director of Aneurin Bevan UHB, Alan Brace, was named last night as HFMA Finance Director of the Year 2014 in front of sector finance leaders. Also celebrated at the Healthcare Finance Management Association’s annual awards was Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust who won the coveted Efficiency and Innovation Award and Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who collected the Costing Award.
The prestigious annual awards celebrate excellence in financial departments across the NHS and mark the culmination of the HFMA annual conference. The conference will have seen sector leaders including NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens and broadcaster John Humphrys take to the stand to discuss the way forward for the NHS and its finances.
A total of eight awards were awarded at the 10th anniversary of the HFMA awards, ranging from the Efficiency and Innovation Award to the Finance Director of the Year Award.
Full details of the all HFMA Award 2014 winners are from the 2014 Awards Page.
The HFMA awards celebrate excellence in finance departments across the four home nations, showcasing best practice and achievement in financial management and governance. While the public sector ethos is as strong in finance departments as it is in front line services, the important work of these teams is all too often overlooked.
The awards ceremony at HFMAs Annual Conference in December is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution and success of finance teams across the UK with an audience of nearly 750 guests.
Who can enter?
The awards are open to all healthcare organisations and employees across the UK – both executives and non-executives. We are also happy to receive entries from voluntary or private sector organisations whose principal activities are the provision of health services.
