Bolton NHS Foundation Trust’s award winning Finance Team has been nominated in an impressive four awards at this year’s Healthcare Financial Management Association (HfMA) Awards.
The team, who won Large Finance Team of the Year and Finance Director of the Year in the 2015 awards, were commended for their work bringing the Trust out of financial special measures and into a surplus.
The awards recognise the work of finance teams and the individuals within them from across the UK. This covers aspects of the role of the finance team including; the production of accounts, costing, governance, training and development, innovation and engaging clinicians in financial management.
This year’s shortlisting has seen them placed in the final four in the following categories:
- Governance (joint nomination with the CCG for work on the New Contract Model)
- Havelock Training Award
- Future Focused Finance Award (Ben Roberts)
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony later this month.
The team have also recently won the FSD North West Brian McNaught Award for recognition of their significant contribution to skills development in the North West. The award is in recognition of the work the team have done hosting development days with other Trusts, sharing best practice and learning from their experiences.
