Could you help CIPFA contribute to the future success of health finance across the UK?

As a CIPFA Health Panel member, you could be at the forefront of making a success of CIPFA's strategy on health finance, influencing the Institute’s work from the grassroots.

The production and dissemination of relevant advice, events and information materials for members and their employers is at the core of CIPFA's professional activities and our Health Panel volunteers enable us to build and maintain our influence by underpinning this process.

Our Health Panel helps to shape the Institute’s support to the Health finance profession by responding to government consultation papers, exposure drafts and discussion documents issued by other professional bodies, working closely with colleagues from a variety of different backgrounds, helping to keep you up to date with the rapid pace of change in today's NHS and related public services.  CIPFA’s pan-public service perspective and connections in fields such as social care and welfare, housing, local government, charities and social enterprise underpin our ability to keep the health finance profession up to speed on developments that can assist practitioners’ own work and the success of their organisations. 

Panel membership involves attendance at, or dial-in participation to, meetings (three meetings are held each year) and providing feedback to CIPFA staff on health-related pieces of work between meetings. 

If you are working in, or with, the NHS finance profession and are interested in seeking membership of the CIPFA Health Panel, please contact Paul Carey-Kent,
Policy Manager, Health Social Care & Welfare Reform, Paul Carey-Kent.
