Provider Finance Directors’ Forum

The Directors’ Forum is designed to be a high level briefing for Directors on topics of particular significance to the provider community, but it also offers you an important opportunity for networking. This gathering of individuals meets throughout the year, operates under the Chatham House rule and the numbers of attendees are restricted in order to maintain the intimate nature of the gathering. The likes of Bob Alexander, Anita Charlesworth, Sir Ian Carruthers, Don Berwick and John Appleby have addressed this informal and interactive get-together.

Technical Forum

The Technical Forum was developed as a direct output of the TIG above, and is designed to be an informal and interactive environment for Finance Directors and senior finance staff to cover topics of particular significance to the provider community. The group runs these twice a year and the aim is to offer you an opportunity in which to discuss and debate relevant issues.

Provider Finance Technical Issues Group (TIG)

This strand focuses on the many technical issues facing providers. Its primary purpose is to liaise with and develop responses to the Department of Health, NHS England, TDA and Monitor; produce technical bulletins, technical working papers and guidance and to develop policy. The TIG is key to the policy development and influencing role of the faculty, and enables HFMA to ensure that the group as a whole remains relevant and proactive.

The TIG decides on the subjects to be covered at the Technical Forums, and these subjects tend to be issues that feature heavily in their meetings and which they feel merit a particular focus and possibly some external guidance and assistance. Past Forums have covered insurance, treasury management and lean management. To join the Faculty or for more information please contact:
