Women in Leadership in NHS Finance – London

An inclusive regional network open to all genders

Supporting the National Women in Leadership network, this regional group brings together both women and men working in finance roles across London who are committed to making NHS finance leadership more reflective of the finance community and populations we serve, through improving the gender balance in senior finance roles.

The network aims to do this by focusing on 4 key areas of development:

  • Returning to work and flexible working
  • Male Allies
  • Picture of Leadership
  • Talent Management

The group is chaired Laragh Walton, University College London & Vicky Clarke, Group Chief Financial Officer, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
