Phase 2 of Finance Training for Health Service Staff


To support you in improving your financial management skills, HSE Finance earlier this year launched an online hub on HSELand featuring finance training materials (HSELanD Share Centre). This hub contains video sessions, audio sessions, presentations and documents on a wide range of Finance topics, which can be viewed and downloaded at your convenience.


As part of Phase 2 of the development of this Finance Training Programme, the following materials have now been added to the hub:


  • National Finance Regulations (NFR’s) – NFRs detail the financial responsibilities, policies and procedures that the HSE has adopted to ensure that the HSE’s financial transactions are carried out in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements. These two video presentations give you more details in relation to:
    • NFR 13 – Cash & Bank
    • NFR 28 – Petty Cash
  • Prompt Payment Interest – This video gives you some information and guidance on Prompt Payment Interest payable on supplier invoices when they’re processed late and how you can avoid or reduce this unnecessary expenditure in your area.


  • Importance of Clinical Coding – Good clinical documentation is central to clinical coding to provide complete hospital activity data resulting in appropriate funding. The video presentation ensures you have the knowledge to understand your responsibilities in relation to recording good clinical documentation.


Additional materials will be made available on the hub over the coming months as well as a series of Finance Training Lunch & Learns facilitated through Skype for Business.
