Financial Resources for NHS Professionals

One of my aims for the blog is to improve financial literacy among healthcare professionals. Although the internet houses a plethora of financial information, deciphering which of it is relevant to you can be a bit of a struggle. This page will therefore serve as a repository for financial resources that are applicable specifically to doctors and other NHS professionals. As always please read the disclaimer.

If you know of a resource that you think should be featured on the page – get in touch!
