Invitation to share your views on  Factors Influencing Doctors in training career decision-making to address Rural, Remote and Coastal Workforce Issues – a Health Education England study

As you may be aware, Health Education England (HEE) is responsible for the planning, education and training of the healthcare workforce, and they have three primary goals which are:

1. To deliver and reform education to produce the best possible future workforce
2. To transform the current workforce to meet tomorrow’s health and care needs
3. To ensure the quality of the education and training system

HEE is conducting a research study investigating the Factors Influencing Doctors in training career decision-making to address Rural, Remote and Coastal Workforce Issues. The findings will inform future investment decisions and ensure that education commissioning is relevant to the identified workforce needs.

We are asking Doctors in training within the NHSE regions to complete a short online survey to capture your valuable views and experiences.

The survey will be open from Mon 3rd Oct to Sun 23rd October and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The survey is available here:
