Income and Costing Accountant
The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust is the UK’s largest orthopaedic hospital and is the leading light in this field both in the UK and world-wide. The RNOH provide a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal health care, ranging from spinal injury to complex bone tumour and specialist rehabilitation; all services which are unique within the NHS.
The Trust regularly conducts cross-working with other hospitals and trusts to ensure maximum availability of specialist skills for patients.
As the Income and Costing Accountant, you will play a pivotal role within finance in supporting the Head of Income and Costing to ensure the reporting of income and operation of PLICs and SLM is completed to a high standard.
Some of your key responsibilities will include:
- Ensuring wide-scale acceptance of Service Line Reporting through review with clinical staff, developing the systems to enable production of SLR and producing comprehensive reports;
- Running RNOH’s costing system, reviewing the quality of data provided and overseeing the completion of statutory Reference Cost returns;
- Identifying service exclusions within Payment by Results and assisting in the production of full-cost local prices that can be used in negotiations with commissioners;
- Producing monthly financial information reports, including monthly management accounts.
This is a tremendously exciting time to be joining The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust with the organisation having recently embarked on a major rebuild on the Stanmore campus.
The successful applicant will be a CCAB-qualified accountant who can demonstrate an understanding of NHS income reporting and costing. You will ideally come from the NHS but RNOH may also look at applicants from other backgrounds, such as healthcare consultancy. Applicants will have excellent analytical skills with the ability to be able to interpret high volumes of data within a short timescale. A strong ability to understand and communicate complex financial information across peers and the management team is essential. You will also demonstrate the ability to work under pressure in this fast moving and changing environment.
