Kent, Surrey and Sussex

At Health Education England (HEE) we work with our partners across Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) to ensure that healthcare providers across the region have the workforce they need to provide services for the population we serve.  We develop the people working in health and care so they can provide local people with the very best care and outcomes, now and for the future.

Recognising that many of our providers needs across our system can be met by developing the existing workforce, our work is focused around comprehensive skills development strategies and addressing local and national priorities.

2017/18 ended on a real high for our system with the announcement of a new medical school in Kent and additional medical places in Brighton and Sussex Medical School. This provides huge opportunity for us to develop the whole workforce by providing a stronger foundation for medical training within our counting.

We have further developed our local workforce action boards to support the workforce agendas of our Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships. These boards are now delivering actions against early plans for the health and social care agenda.

We continue to manage our mandated programmes across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, such as Mental Health, whilst ensuring that the national mandates are delivered in accordance with local population need.

Through effective partnerships, collaboration and innovative approaches to education and training we are transforming health and care. Working together with our providers, commissioners, arms length body partners, social care, academic health science network, education providers, and the voluntary and independent sectors. Without these partnerships and relationships, we would not be able to deliver what is needed by our local population, trainees and students.

Stakeholder review

The annual stakeholder review highlights a selection of the projects and initiatives we are working on as well as our achievements and future developments across the region. They show how we are making a real difference to the knowledge and skills of staff, students and trainees and therefore to the health and well being of the people they serve.
