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

As a CIPFA Health & Social Care Board member, you could be at the forefront of making a success of CIPFA's strategy on health and social care 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 & Social Care Board helps to shape the Institute’s support to the Health and social care 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. 

Board 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 & Social Care Board, please contact Eleanor Roy, Policy Manager, Health & Social Care.
