Careers in Public Health

The Health Education East Midlands Postgraduate Medical Education Directorate is based at the East Midlands LETB offices in Nottingham. We are involved with Public Health training, education and workforce development across the East Midlands.

The Public Health workforce can be divided into three groups: Specialists, Practitioners and the wider workforce who work in and outside the NHS. Health Education East Midlands works with stakeholders including Public Health Midlands and East to identify and respond to the local public health workforce needs.

As well as coordinating specialty training in the East Midlands, the team has responsibility for the central recruitment process for England and Wales. The team provides support for the region’s local public health specialty trainees throughout their training programme from induction to completion.

For more information about our programmes please see the links on the right.

It is the first "one-stop shop" for UK-wide information on careers and development in public health and health and wellbeing. It aims to recruit people into public health jobs, and support the whole workforce from volunteers up to senior management in developing their careers.
