How we will do it with your help
Our aim is to involve a wide group of interested stakeholders as we develop this new way of partnership working - including employees, employers (public and private) as well as the voluntary and independent sectors.
For the first time patients and the public will be invited to take part in setting up this organisation and setting our initial priorities.
We also look to existing and new parts of clinical networks for collaborative working relationships - including clinical senates and Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs). Local Heath and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) will also be invited to contribute as well as other Local Authority-led bodies who have health on their agenda.
From 1 April 2012, we operated in shadow form alongside the current way that education and training was managed in the East Midlands by the Strategic Health Authority.
In November 2012, the Authorisation process by Health Education England reviewed how prepared we were to take on our new responsibilities.
On 1 April 2013, we were formally launched as a sub-committee of Health Education England covering the East Midlands.
