Briefing / Skills, behaviours and leadership styles required and exhibited by NHS system leaders

25 January 2022
1 CPD hour
The MBA in healthcare finance was developed in response to the scale of the financial and operational changes in the NHS. Financial acumen alone is no longer enough. There is an increasing need for professionals who understand the need for quality of service and people management in addition to financial information. Graduates of the HFMA advanced diploma in healthcare business and finance are eligible to entry onto the programme.

The final assessment for learners completing the MBA in healthcare finance requires them to complete a consultancy project on an aspect of healthcare finance. These projects have provided valuable research on a range of topics, which may be of interest to others. 
The healthcare consultancy project is one of three modules completed in the final year. The HFMA provides non-academic support to learners, supplementing that provided by BPP University.

As part of the final assessment for the MBA in healthcare finance, Ronald Lukandwa, senior finance manager at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, explores the skills behaviours and leaderships styles required and exhibited by NHS system leaders. This summary, along with the full project, sets out research that may be useful to other NHS finance professionals. It does not represent the views of HFMA.
