MLCSU Finance team awarded accreditation by NHS Finance Leadership Council

We are delighted to announce that following a recommendation by the Future-Focused Finance (FFF) assessors, the Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit’s Finance team have been awarded Level 3 Towards Excellence Accreditation.

The Future-Focused Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation, awarded by the NHS Finance Leadership Council, recognises organisations with excellent finance skills development culture and practices in place. There are three levels, each designed to reflect the continuous development of the finance function and recognising the highest standards of financial competence and commitment to skills development.

For our clients, the accreditation provides further assurance that our staff working on their behalf have the very best finance skills and are benefitting from the highest levels of investment in their development.  This is reflected in the quality of our services for which we regularly receive very positive comments, including this recent feedback: “A professional, proactive, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable financial services team!”

Tony Matthews, Director of Finance and Commerce at MLCSU, said: “This is fantastic news. This level of accreditation is very significant as it shows that we have achieved the highest level of finance skills, development culture and practices. I would like to thank all our staff for their efforts and contribution in arriving at this fabulous outcome.”
