About this event

This two day conference assisted all those involved in the planning and delivery of the annual accounts process for the year 2022/23. Through a mix of online plenary and workshop sessions, the event was an excellent opportunity for discussions, networking and for delegates to feedback to colleagues from NHS England and the DHSC.

This event provided the opportunity to discuss changes to accounting and reporting requirements and to raise any issues/questions with auditors, NHS England, and Department of Health and Social Care colleagues. There was also the opportunity to discuss issues that are expected to arise in this year's accounts preparation and audit process, as well as to hear about other developments and best practice in financial reporting.

    Making time matter with intelligent automation

    Many fear the introduction of robotic process automation as something that could mean job losses and replace the need for human workers in financial departments.

    In this session, Darren will put your mind at ease and will discuss how 'virtual workers' can be deployed non-disruptively into business operations and can be utilised to digitise many manual processes

    By using robotic process automation, Darren and his team have been able to support their finance team to work faster and smarter in the challenging climate we currently face.
