NHS Health Education England
Health Education England supports the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England.
Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
As the NHS workforce organisation for England, HEE is uniquely placed to support the NHS to become a global centre of excellence for workforce development. The HEE Directorate of Global Health Partnerships (GHP) does this by embedding global skills, learning and innovation, supporting local NHS organisations and systems to engage in global activity as a way to attract and retain staff, bringing experienced overseas staff to work in the NHS on placements; and also by playing a facilitative role to ensure the collective efforts and expertise of the NHS is coordinated and aligned to the overseas objectives of Government departments.
GHP focuses on using mutually beneficial partnerships which can deliver:
An offer to NHS staff for their learning and development
An offer to NHS organisations and systems delivering a high-quality workforce, and
An offer to global partners for mutual benefit from collaboration
