21 July 2023 Robert White, HFMA associate
1 CPD hour
A roundtable discussion was held in May 2023 with Scotland’s national and regional finance leaders together with HFMA trustees from the other three home nations. The candid and open discussion sought to explore the realities of improving productivity and efficiency in light of a 25.6% drop at the end of 2020/21 as set out by the Office for National Statistics, the most recent period available.

With both obstacles and opportunities for improving productivity and efficiency in mind, discussions centred around workforce and skills optimisation, digitalisation of service delivery and preventative and population health management. The capacity and capability to implement change, particularly the skills finance professionals would need, was also covered.
