HFMA Awards

An annual celebration of innovation and excellence in healthcare finance and governance.

Nominations open now!

Nominations for the HFMA Awards 2024 are open until Friday 27 September.

The HFMA National Healthcare Finance Awards programme recognises and celebrates the work of finance teams and individuals from across the UK. 

The awards cover the fundamental aspects of the finance team role: including the production of the accounts, costing, governance, training and development, as well as the vital area of innovation. Crucially, given the importance of spreading financial awareness outside of finance departments, the awards also focus on the importance of engaging clinicians in financial management.

This year, we are proud to introduce the rising star and finance champion of the year award categories. The rising star award aims to recognise individuals who are early on in their finance careers and who have already shown initiative, skill and commitment and who are also already making a significant contribution to the effective management of finances in their organisation. The finance champion of the year award acknowledges the contribution made by those working outside finance departments to the effective management of NHS finances.

For all queries regarding any of the awards, please contact Danielle Lucas.
