NHS East Midlands is one of ten Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) that form the intermediate tier of the NHS between the Department of Health and the primary care, acute, ambulance and mental health trusts in the region.
Operating closely with the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery, NHS organisations, universities and colleges, City and County Councils, and others, the SHA co-ordinates in excess of £350 million of education and training for healthcare professionals, to ensure that we meet today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.
The SHA also works with front-line organisations within the region to design and deliver safe, effective and high quality health services, providing support in relation to leadership, co-ordination, development and assurance of delivery.
In response to the Prime Minister’s desire to improve transparency around how the public sector spends its money, and following guidance issued by HM Treasury in September 2010, the SHA will publish monthly reports of expenditure over £25,000.
For additional information about the publication scheme, see the HM Treasury guidance.
