About Us

About Us

We Can Do Together is a partnership of health and care organisations in Suffolk and North East Essex, working in collaboration to develop a strong multidisciplinary workforce that can deliver the best care possible to patients in their community.

We aim to attract people, especially those starting out in the world of work, into a career in health and care to help to shape sector leaders for the future – as well as working to connect existing staff with career support and opportunities for further development.

What do we do?

  • Make it easier for health and care staff – and those interested in joining the sector – to access invaluable information and careers resources
  • Work to increase awareness of the various career options within health and care, collaborating with schools and colleges to deliver coordinated work experience opportunities across our region
  • Promote the range of roles, job opportunities, career options and pathways, apprenticeships and educational training courses within health and care
  • Assist existing staff with ‘Career Passports’, making moving across the sector, and integrated, joined-up working practices, easier for all
  • Manage a shared hub for staff to access information (such as resources, training courses, vacancies, wellbeing support etc) across organisations
  • Encourage the development of an inclusive, compassionate culture of leadership for the future within the sector

What are our aims?

Our Health and Care Academy connects organisations across the region who have been working in partnership to attract – and retain – the best possible workforce for the sector and in doing so, provide the highest levels of care for patients in the community. Our objectives reflect this; to ensure the right development opportunities, information and support structure is in place for our current and future workforce across Suffolk and North East Essex, which in turn empowers a workforce that delivers high standards of care for all.

We take a joined-up approach to connect ‘one workforce’ across the whole system (including primary and secondary care, community and social care). By working together, our current and future generation of workforce will have better means to develop and drive their careers (and patient care) within our partner organisations.

“I believe initiatives like the Health & Care Academy are important, to support students in making decisions for future careers and accessing professional roles in healthcare.”
