A diverse and inclusive finance function leads to better care for patients and a better place to work. It results in improved management of resources, greater innovation and more effective decision-making. This report, written by Future-Focused Finance (FFF) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), explores the practical actions that can make a difference and drive positive change.
There is no doubt that there is the desire and will to make changes to improve diversity and inclusion in NHS finance. However, the challenge is translating this into sustained actions to get to a position where diversity and inclusion is embedded in ways of working for everyone.
Building on the FFF diversity forum in July 2019, this report sets out why diversity and inclusion are important; considers the current position; and suggests what actions can be taken to make a difference.
