Coventry University Vice - Chancellor, John Latham, CBE, has been appointed as a non-executive director to the Board of Health Education England (HEE).
Professor Latham is one of five appointments that will provide independent advice, support and scrutiny and work with senior HEE officials on key policy decisions.
As part of the NHS, HEE supports the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
This is a crucial time in the development of the skills requirements of the Health Services in England and the opportunity to be part of the process is both an honour and a challenge I look forward to being part of.
The changes in the nature of education delivery and technology, alongside the additional flexibility required by a modern day provision will make the task even more important if we are to continue to have a world-leading Health Service.
