Health Education Thames Valley (LETB)
AND Public Health
LETBs bring education, training and development together locally in order to improve the quality of care and treatment of patients through the development of skills and values for staff.
All providers of NHS services need to be a member of, and be involved with the work of the LETB.
Providers now have the opportunity to lead the education and training agenda and help decide the skills and values they require for staff and how funding is spent.
The three main functions of a LETB are to:
identify and agree the local needs for education and training to deliver the right people and skills to meet future service needs
plan and commission high quality education and training in its region in order to secure future workforce supply and improve patient outcomes
bring providers and relevant stakeholders together to provide a forum for developing the whole workforce.
LETBs are governed by boards that have representation from local providers on them.
The LETB Board represents the members of the LETB
The Board determines the local education and training strategy and take decisions on behalf of the LETB.
All providers within the LETB should co-operate on workforce data and the planning and provision of professional education and training
There are duties on commissioners (NHS CB and CCGs) to promote the use of service contracts to support good education outcomes.
