Health Education England (HEE) has been created to ensure the National Health Service has the right staff with the right skills, values and behaviours in the right place at the right time in the right numbers. This includes working to deliver new generations of skilled staff to areas where there is established need, as well as working to support employers in encouraging existing staff to work in these areas. This includes our accident and emergency (A&E) departments. The taskforce looking into the issue of A&E staffing is due to report in the summer 2013 and HEE will work with colleagues across the NHS and in education to deliver the actions it recommends.
