HFMA have now launched a Commissioning Finance Faculty which holds a number of commissioning-based events throughout the year. The faculty is supported by two groups the details of which are as follows:
HFMA Commissioning Faculty Steering Group
This is a high level group made up of CFOs from CCGs and CSUs and also representatives from a couple of the NHS England area teams. The group meets three times a year, and will focus on the programme of faculty events and the influencing agenda of the faculty.
HFMA Commissioning Faculty Technical Group
What was previously called the HFMA Commissioning Finance Group has now become the Commissioning Faculty Technical Group. This group will largely continue as before in terms of its work programme and terms of reference and is made up of senior finance staff from CCGs and CSUs as well representatives from other key organisations. The group will look at more of the technical aspects of commissioning finance and will also have input into HFMA’s briefings, consultation responses and surveys.
