The South West Finance Academy will increase the networking, sharing and collaboration opportunities across the region, with a focus on the health and wellbeing of our staff.

As part of its Networking workstream the South West Finance Academy plans to:

  • Increase the engagement and cohesiveness within Integrated Care Systems through quarterly networking events for each of the seven ICSs
  • Bring together finance staff from across the region working in financial and management accounting, forecasting, business planning, costing and procurement as well as students and apprentices
  • Enable finance staff across the region to be able to ask for help, share information, network and share successes on a daily basis
  • Demonstrate a commitment from senior leaders in the region to the continuous improvement of their finance departments
  • Support the rollout of the Value Maker Strategy across the region, and drive further engagement in this network
  • Ensure a standard of excellence across the region through the One NHS Finance accreditation process
