What is Skills & Strengths?

The aim of the Skills & Strengths action area is to help finance staff to develop the skills they need to support the NHS and to deliver the ambitions of Future-Focused Finance.

What do we do?

We have focused our efforts in two key areas:

  • We have developed our ‘4 Strengths’. These are the 4 key things that the Finance Leadership Council believe everybody working in NHS Finance should be able to demonstrate. They are:
    • I’m a finance expert
    • I’m a team player
    • I drive value
    • I make change happen
  • We are working with colleagues at Health Education England to develop a finance presence on their e-Learning for Health platform, that is already used by thousands of clinicians across the NHS.

How to get involved
