Health Education England has responsibility for ensuring high quality education and training is provided to all health professionals including the next generation of doctors, dentists and allied health professionals. It supports 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”.

To do this effectively and to ensure the best possible outcomes and experience for patients and people, we work closely with key stakeholders to ensure everything is driven by patient needs and by local healthcare providers.

We need to be the best at what we do, and that’s ensuring doctors and dentists are educated, trained and motivated to the highest standards for a first-class modern health service. So, in joining us, you will find your skills are really valued because your success is vital to ours.
