About the Federation for Informatics Professionals:

FEDIP is the only public register for all informatics professionals in the UK dedicated to delivering better healthcare through technology.
The federation brings individuals and organisations together to establish professional standards and maintain a public register of practitioners offering greater confidence to the wider society.

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support 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.


We believe that the most important resource the NHS has is its people. Without a skilled workforce there is no NHS. There are few careers that are as rewarding as one in the NHS, or that give you the opportunity to work with such a variety of people. Each and every one can make a difference to patients.

Our vision is to provide the right workforce, with the right skills and values, in the right place at the right time to better meet the needs and wants of patients - now and in the future.
