Demonstrate the strength, quality and positive culture of your finance team by achieving One NHS Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation.
One NHS Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation shows that your finance team’s processes and procedures are working. It proves you’ve developed a culture where staff feel appreciated and successes are celebrated. There are three levels, and only the best finance teams achieve full accreditation, could yours?
To start the process, you’ll need to complete a proforma, which you can download at the bottom of the page. There are three submission dates each year, 31 December, 30 April and 31 August. Once you’ve completed the proforma, return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those wishing to go for their Level 2 or 3, please let the central team know with at least 6 months notice from the deadline you wish to submit to in order for us to assign assessors. If you are aiming to go for the 31st August 2024 deadline please send your proformas through to email@example.com by COP 3rd May. We will then assess your organisation’s readiness ahead of assessor assignment.
Please note if you are going for Level 2 we will need your updated Level 1 proforma and if you are going for level 3 we will need your updated Levels 1&2 proformas.
If you have any questions on the new standards to please get in touch and a member of the team would be happy to help.
