HFMA Awards 2011 

The HFMA Awards proved once again to be a celebration of excellence in NHS finance across the UK. Individual and team winners in eight categories covered the full spectrum of the function’s activities, from producing accounts and sound governance to finance training, clinical engagement and excellence in leadership and strategic thinking.

This year, a new award recognised improvements in costing processes and information that have allowed organisations to make better decisions.

The HFMA also honoured a number of individuals who have made a significant contribution to the association. These personal awards included one Outstanding Contribution Award, which is given to someone who has gone above and beyond their regular duties to deliver a particular project that has benefited the association.

The HFMA also admitted five new Honorary Fellows. Fellowships are given to individuals who have made a substantial and sustained contribution to the life and work of the association.
