Paul Harvey

Job Title: Research and Development Funding Officer
Organisation: University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust


Paul has worked in the NHS since May 2013, first joining the Research & Development Team at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) as a Funding Officer, to recharge income from third party management. Before this, Paul worked in accounting and finance in the private sector and now has an extensive 28 years of experience in this field. From May 2015, Paul led the R&D Funding Team at UHNM on developing the finance side of the EDGE system from scratch to meet the team’s needs so that all finances are managed in house rather than via a third party. This has resulted in a considerable cost saving for the Department. There are currently in excess of 80 studies now set up. This innovative move has meant that the Department has already invoiced/received hundreds of thousands of pounds of income via EDGE since October 2015.
UHNM has set a precedent with this work, and a training course is currently being developed. This training, which will be led by Paul himself, will be offered to other Trusts that wish to increase overall income, level of detail and transparency around flow of income, by using the EDGE system to bring finances in-house completely.
