Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust: Finance Department

Over the past 18 months the Sherwood Forest Hospital’s finance team has focused on ‘Working towards excellence’.

To do this the team has embraced an initiative called Future-Focused Finance (FFF), which is about improving NHS finance for everyone; recognising the need for strong financial skills and understanding across all professional groups to deliver good patient care and value for tax payers.

The trust has successfully used this initiative to improve the quality of the finance team and financial management through a range of networks, frameworks and toolkits, as well as events, workshops and other learning and development opportunities with very positive outcomes.
