Health Education England (HEE) supports the delivery of high-quality patient care through its role in educating, training and developing the health workforce.

Global engagement is in our national interest. The NHS is increasingly engaging in global health work, with growing interest from NHS staff for overseas learning opportunities and an increasing demand for NHS expertise and services globally.

HEE has legislative responsibility to ensure that our future workforce is available in the right numbers and has the necessary skills, values and behaviours to meet patients’ needs and deliver high quality care. 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. HEE can do this by embedding global skills, learning and innovation, supporting local NHS organisations 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 including DFID, FCO, DHSC.
