The HEE Star is a simple, coherent framework to facilitate and guide workforce conversations. It equips provider systems, ICB’s and People Boards with a single framework to define key workforce requirements, determine responsive solutions and deliver the best care to service users. It also hosts a single ‘go to’ directory for  providers and systems to access  and explore a range of workforce  transformation solutions.

  • Structured framework – creates clarity & focus​
  • Complex workforce problem – simplified​
  • Time to consider the future of work and thinking beyond traditional boundaries​
  • Opportunity to reflect and discuss the workforce challenge with experts or experienced colleagues and service users
