HFMA Annual Conference 2022
The theme for the annual conference was Strength in numbers. This focused on reasserting the influence of the finance function on discussions throughout the NHS to deliver effective and sustainable patient services.
The Conference looked at the future of healthcare, including the hot topics that will shape its evolution and how we need to adjust strategies to meet the changes.
Within this, the programme covered environment sustainability, diversity and inclusion, health inequalities, and digital transformation as well as hearing case studies from around the NHS.
NHS Supply Chain session – Tuesday 6 December 12:10pm
“Delivering value in collaboration with the health and care system: making it easier for the NHS to put patients first.“
NHS Supply Chain continues to support the elective recovery plan through exploring opportunities to collaborate with trusts and ICSs that focus on improving efficiencies and delivering value across the patient pathway.
