About this event

This conference has been designed to assist all those involved in the planning and delivery of the annual accounts process for the year 2019/20. Through a mix of both plenary and workshop sessions, this event will be an excellent opportunity for discussions, networking and for delegates to feedback to colleagues from NHS Improvement and NHS England.

Why should you attend?

This event will provide the opportunity to discuss changes to accounting and reporting requirements and to raise any issues/questions with NHS England, NHS Improvement and Department of Health and Social Care colleagues. There will also be the opportunity to hear and discuss issues that are expected to arise in this year's accounts preparation and audit process. 

Register today

Discounts are available for delegates from HFMA partner organisations. Please email for any queries.

We are also hosting the Pre-accounts planning event in London on 30 January 2020.
