In Tina's Words
"There are increasing pressures on the healthcare sector to reduce costs and so we aim to provide a service to clients that is both cost effective and proactive. With the constant changes taking place in the healthcare sector, we ensure that we keep up to date and provide expertise where it is required.
Working in the accountancy profession and being responsible for our NHS Pension Management Service allows me to indulge my passion for problem solving as nothing is more complex or fraught with risks than the NHS Pension Scheme! I enjoy working with healthcare professionals as I feel that I am 'caring for the carers' and by working with like-minded colleagues in an open environment where ideas can be shared, I believe we have something truly unique to offer our clients which adds real value."
