The HFMA National Healthcare Finance Awards 2016


HFMA’s National Healthcare Finance Awards programme recognises 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.

Congratulations to all of this year's award winners!

"We see the HFMA Awards as the Oscars for NHS finance so we look forward to them and put effort into them. Having said that, it is a by-product of the good work we do. We recognise that finance, just like every other department or division, has to change and has a major role in transforming the NHS. We must show we are willing to get involved in and able to find new ways to achieve more for less."

Rob Forster, director of finance and deputy chief executive, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS FT
