    If you are interested in better management and performance in a way that benefits patients and delivers efficiencies, this FREE webinar will give insight into how Service Line Reporting (SLR) and Service Line Management (SLM) can help.

    During the session we will cover:

    •Background to why and how Monitor developed it

  • Many NHS Trusts face a growing financial gap over the next 3 years. With £20 billion of efficiency savings yet to be achieved, more strategic estate plans need to be implemented without any compromise to the quality of services delivered.

    Better estate management offers a realistic and achievable route to cost-savings.

    To assist the NHS finance community in understanding how FM and estate transformation projects can successfully be implemented to support cost-savings initiatives this webinar will provide a detailed overview of 4 different types of major FM / estates projects that have recently concluded. Four example projects will be explained, including:

    • The Leicestershire major FM outsourcing project with Interserve
    • An innovative cost-saving estate management partnership between an NHS Trust and Capita
    • LABV estate transformation projects using local asset backed joint ventures and
    • Energy saving managed service projects.

    Lee Clarke, Associate at DAC Beachcroft LLP and Marcus Palmer, KPMG will explain how each model has advantages and traps for the unwary but can, if procured carefully, provide real cost-savings for NHS organisations. Co-presented by Marcus Palmer, KPMG and Chaired by Andy Ray, Deputy Director of Finance, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

    Aimed at Directors of Finance and their board colleagues, senior finance staff, along with their estates and facilities colleagues.
  • A major new finance strategy will be much more than a staff development plan. It will be shaped by the NHS finance function and be informed by the requirements of clinicians and other NHS staff.

    We know the challenges. Demand is growing. Funding is flatter. The health commissioning and provision landscape is still new. So our colleagues are looking to us to lead and support the changes that need to happen.

    This is why the six national heads of the NHS finance profession have come together to initiate Future-Focused Finance which offers a vision for NHS finance to aspire to over the next five years.

    Future-Focused Finance is about ‘Making People Count’. That includes everyone who works in finance, in every role at every level, those we work with to deliver services and the patients and communities that use and support those services.

    Turning the ambition of Future-Focused Finance into reality now needs your input to be shaped and brought to life by you. This free webinar will summarise the progress so far and signpost how you can make your views known and get involved in making it happen.
