Midlands Finance Academy

To create, develop and support a leading NHS finance community for the Midlands that reflects the population we serve.

About us

The NHS Midlands Finance Academy was established in 2022 and launched its strategy in 2023. The two-year strategy outlines the ambitions for the NHS finance community in the Midlands across four key themes:

  1. Professional development
  2. Equality, diversity and inclusion
  3. Networking, collaboration and innovations
  4. NHS of the future

Each of these themes have been developed into an action plan, which is detailed within the strategy. These themes are supported by individual working groups, which are available for all staff in NHS finance in the Midlands to join and engage with.

The Academy works with the Skills Development Networks in the Midlands and with regional HFMA branches to develop and provide a core finance curriculum to ensure access to the technical skills, personal competencies and behavioural characteristics needed at the different stages in people’s careers.

The Midlands Regional Academy is chaired by by Simon Crowther, Executive Director of Finance and Performance, University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust and will be responsible for approving operational plans to enable the delivery of our NHS Finance Development strategy, set by the Finance Leadership Council.
