Sam Garrett
Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
I work at HPFT, a Mental Health and Specialist Learning Disabilities Trust, we are based in Hertfordshire and run Mental Health (social care as well as health) and specialist LD services across the county as well as in Essex, Norfolk and Buckinghamshire. I am the Head of Financial Planning & Reporting, which basically means that I head up the Management Accounting function for the Trust. I have been interested in FFF for some time, and recently became a FACE because a key part of my role is improving financial literacy across the Trust, including by running training; this is something I really enjoy doing. I am also proud to say that we were the first Finance Department in the East of England to get FFF accreditation, currently at Level 1, we are working on Level 2. I have worked in the NHS for 15 years, love working for HPFT, and am passionate about the services we provide.
