St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is the Lead Employer for over 9,000 Doctors in Speciality Training from all speciality types across a number of Health Education England (HEE) areas.



The Lead Employer model is a collaborative one, with the responsibilities of the traditional employer shared between three major stakeholders, who are:


  • Lead Employer – Overall employment responsibility including e.g. contracts of employment, employment checks, pay, restrictions/exclusions and disciplinary matters etc. The Lead Employer itself offers a single point of contact, co-ordinating with all stakeholders including third party agencies e.g. Police, Safeguarding etc.
  • Host Organisation – Provides day to day management, and day to day supervision of training by clinical & educational supervisors
  • Health Education EnglandResponsible Officer, supervision of training & progress in training. HEE ensures consistency with the handling and resolution of concerns raised relating to capability and health matters.

All three stakeholders’ primary function is to ensure that trainees complete their training satisfactorily and in doing so provide an excellent service to the local NHS and its patients.
