Plan on a page

HEE’s strategic framework (Plan on a Page) outlines our strategic goals, annual objectives and key foundations of success, mapped into a performance framework.

As part of our annual review of the Plan on a Page we agreed that now is the time to be bolder, more ambitious and aspirational. We have refreshed our strategic goals to better reflect our role as system leaders for education and training and partners across health and care. Our new annual objectives support these three strategic goals. HEE’s foundations of success, values and ensuring value for money complete the framework.

HEE is part of the NHS, and we work with partners to plan, recruit, educate and train the health workforce.

The programmes and projects to deliver our objectives will be underpinned by our five foundations of success – Best Place to Work; Digital First; Improved Governance and Processes; Cooperation and Collaboration; and a performance improvement culture.

In early 2021 we engaged colleagues across HEE in defining our own values and behaviours that align with the NHS Constitution, but also reflect our unique role and how we want to work with each other. How we embed them and learning from the pandemic into our future operating model will be a key task. This work will continue through 2021/22 and be reflected in next year’s Plan on a Page.
