In a rapidly changing NHS, this course gives the context for understanding healthcare business and finance. This is key to recognising how finances and financial pressures can affect patients. The NHS is looking to do things differently – in particular, this means working very closely with social care, and other parts of the healthcare system - finding new ways of delivering care that puts the patient at the centre.
The HFMA intermediate qualifications have been designed for professionals who feel they could benefit from a greater understanding of the fundamentals of healthcare business and finance. They offer significant value to those already working in finance or administration as well as clinicians, contract or project managers and those involved in corporate governance. They also offer possible progression onto HFMA's advanced qualifications with a route into an MBA in healthcare finance.
