Health Education East of England (HEEoE) is the Local Education and Training Board that covers Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. HEEoE is a subcommittee of Health Education England, and we exist to ensure the security of workforce supply and continuously to improve the quality of education, training and development in the east of England. We also aim to enable the health and care workforce to respond effectively to the needs of patients, carers and families in the east of England's 5.8m population.
Our guiding principles which underpin the operating model for the LETB are that:
- We are one organisation serving the east of England
- We are Patient focussed in every decision we make and action we take
- We are Provider led; and
- We engage People in what we do
In short, we concentrate on four key areas: planning; education and training; workforce transformation and leadership with the aim of driving up quality, supported by meaningful engagement with our partners, patients and staff. The values set out in the NHS constitution will lie at the heart of what we do and how we operate.
