The running of any business requires financial shrewdness and the NHS and Healthcare organisations are no different. As a primarily publicly funded organisation, it’s important that the NHS is as efficient with money as possible. Those working in the various Finance and Accounting roles make this their responsibility.
Depending on the department structure and specifics of the role, an accounting or finance professional will handle aspects such as book-keeping, the issuing of financial statements and payroll. The importance of managing expenditure and maintaining efficiency make finance staff an integral part of many operations.
While improving the figures of a commercial business could be satisfying, making a tangible benefit to an aspect of the NHS is, in effect, making taxpayer money and the nation’s health service go further. As the NHS is funded by and providing care for the people of the UK, safeguarding against frivolous spending and making every penny count is vital. Financial staff are suitably valued and the promotional prospects of the role can see a finance assistant or an analyst become a director, manager or head of finance.
