I am pleased to report that a further six organisations were accredited at last week’s FLC: two at Level 2 and four at Level 1. They are:
|East Cheshire NHS FT (North West)|
|Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS FT (East Midlands)|
|Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS FT (East Midlands)|
|Kent & Medway NHS & Social Care Partnership Trust (South East Coast)|
|Kent Community Health NHS FT (South East Coast)|
|West Leicestershire CCG (East Midlands)|
Congratulations to everyone from these organisations on gaining their accreditation.
FLC also agreed a number of changes to the accreditation criteria, which have now been implemented. Firstly, our accreditation process will now be known as Future-Focused Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation, to reflect the fact that we continue to work closely with colleagues from the North West SDN team on accreditation and their long-standing process is known as Towards Excellence.
We have also introduced a handful of new criteria in the process and taken the opportunity to tidy up the way in which they are presented. Details of the new criteria for each level of the process can be found on the accreditation pages elsewhere on the website. The key changes can be summarised as follows:
As always, I am very happy to answer any questions that colleagues may have around the accreditation process. I can be contacted on email@example.com. However, if you are based in the North West you should contact Jacky Bowman in the first instance.
