As you may be aware the services that support Postgraduate medical and dental trainee management for HEE in London and Kent Surrey and Sussex are undertaking a programme of works to merge their services. This initially involved the co-location for the majority of team members to Stewart House in London, which is now complete.
A new structure has been developed for this team which is known as the Healthcare Education Team (HET). The team supports the role of the Dean and Director of Education for Quality and the four Postgraduate Deans with their respective Specialty and Dental Schools across the region.
The purpose of this communication is to share that the Senior Management Team for HET has been appointed. Further information will be provided to relevant colleagues as the wider team is appointed. This isn’t expected to be complete until the New Year and will be an iterative process as recruitment takes place following consultation with staff, which is currently underway.
We will ensure that any changes in how services are developed and provided are shared with you, involving your input where relevant. Communications have started with medical staffing colleagues as we work with our own Informatics colleagues internally on new ways of working and communicating relevant information to trusts regarding trainee rotations.
Angela Fletcher leads the team as Head of PGMDE Delivery. Angela previously managed the Specialty Schools for KSS.
She is supported by three senior PGMDE Business Managers:-
Martyn Clark who previously managed workforce in KSS
Karen Chummun who managed trainee recruitment for London and
Marc Terry who managed the South Thames Foundation School
All bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the new team which will implement the new ways of working and the new structure for HET that are being developed.
