Introducing Health Education England developed by the Health Education England Transition Team aims to raise awareness of the role of Health Education England (HEE) and Local Education and Training Boards. It provides a basis for implementing the policy set out in Liberating the NHS: Developing the healthcare workforce - from delivery to design.

Introducing Health Education England sets out the role of the new organisation for NHS chief executives, directors of HR, all staff in HEE sender organisations and trade unions. It outlines the vision and purpose,  values and culture and the proposed advisory structure.
