During May we ran premises events just as NHS England published guidance on how to apply to the Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (ETTF). At workshops in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London, our premises experts Bill May and Mike Simpson explained the regulatory context and policy aims that commissioners will need to consider when making funding applications. One CCG delegate said the event provided an “excellent overview highlighting key issues to take back to the CCG to action”, but another remarked that it was “frightening to hear the complexity [of the issue] and lack of expertise we have in CCG land”.
We work in fast-paced environments, where there are tight deadlines that regularly need to be met. Do your to-do piles only ever seem to get bigger, your inbox only ever become fuller and do you seem to have an ever decreasing amount of time to complete your work in?
This e-learning course helps you develop techniques to meet deadlines by increasing your productivity in the different aspects of your role. It features an in-depth section on how to hold effective meetings, successful collaboration and delegation. It also covers how to prioritise, motivate, avoid stress and cope with colleagues' expectations.
Professionals in all walks of life sometimes struggle to get their issues heard at the strategic level. This e-learning course has been designed for professionals who want to develop their strategic thinking skills and influence the strategic direction of their organisation.
Illustrated throughout with real life activities and scenarios, this course will show you why strategy is important to all professionals, and offer tips to help you to think strategically within your organisation.
Negotiation is the essential skill for commissioners and providers of health services, the key to providing the best value for money for the taxpayer and the best services for patients.
We use negotiation implicitly in all our business relationships and communications. By becoming more aware of this innate skill we can use it more effectively in procuring health services and negotiating contracts. In this one-day training event you will learn how to make the best of a skill that we possess naturally and yet rarely use to best effect.
This workshop is on 10 January in Leeds and 7 March in Birmingham.
