About this event

We are delighted to launch HFMA Connect. Join this supportive community dedicated to assisting NHS finance leaders, being run in collaboration with the HFMA Hub partnership. This new network facilitates knowledge sharing and looks to assist directors of finance, chief finance officers and deputies as they navigate the current challenges facing the NHS.

The first HFMA Connect face to face forum will be held on 30 January 2024 at Rochester Row in London, followed by a networking lunch with colleagues. This forum will bring together NHS finance leaders, to give you an opportunity to collaborate and offer a platform to engage with your peers, along with hearing updates on topical issues, national updates and best practice sharing. The HFMA Connect is part of the Hub partnership, and places are free in line with the Hub partnership terms and conditions.
