A fundamental component of both finance and the business of health in general is the creation of effective business cases to support activity, investment, strategy and purchasing decisions. It's a role that every consultant or clinical leader is called upon to undertake from time to time. Creating an effective business case has a big impact on your service. A good one can lead to the right resources and a poor one can continually be passed over in favour of better presented projects. The development of skills in this arena can have a massive impact on the success of your service and your achievement as an individual.
