This game allows participants to understand how an acute provider earns its income and where it spends its money. It illustrates in a very practical way that operational decisions have an effect on the financial position of the organisation as well as its quality rating. It also demonstrates that decisions made to meet a financial target impact on the running of the organisation as well as the quality of care that it provides to its patients. Each participant takes on a different job in the acute trust – bed manager, theatre manager, contracts manager, treasury accountant, quality assurance manager and management accountant. The teams make decisions about waiting lists, resource allocation, staffing levels and see what the effect of those decisions are.
Aimed at clinicians who would like a better understanding of how the money flows around the NHS and how operational and financial decisions make an impact on service quality.
This event is only open to Clinicians or Non-Finance staff.
