Welcome to South West

The HFMA hosts finance and procurement skills development for the South West region. We are committed to providing comprehensive high-quality events, webinars and leadership programmes for all finance and procurement staff throughout all stages of their careers.

Our annual joint finance and procurement programme is developed locally with our FSD and PSD leads, PSD board and SDN board. This ensures the content reflects the requirements of each organisaiton as well as being guided by the national view. In addition to providing invaluable CPD opportunities. The South West SDN programme provides colleagues with a platform to network and share best practice.

SDN programme

Our SDN programme offers a comprehensive selection of training and development opportunities for all levels of NHS finance and procurement staff.

The content is crafted following a training needs analysis conducted through FSD and PSD leads meetings and a survey of all users. The programme is reviewed regularly, and feedback is collected and analysed post event to ensure a level of quality you can trust.

All training is CPD accredited, through HFMAs status as an accredited provider.
