Our story

Our Story_e-LfHe-Learning for Healthcare was formed in April 2007 to deliver a range of programmes, after a successful pilot with the Radiology-Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) which generated a model for the future delivery of generic and professional healthcare training.
In 2013, e-LfH transitioned across to Health Education England and continues to work in partnership to develop e-learning programmes to support the health and care workforce.

e-LfH is now in the process of delivering or developing more than 400 e-learning programmes in collaboration with organisations including Royal Colleges, Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England.

ESR provides a single point of access for all NHS staff with an ESR record to access national and local NHS e-learning courses, flexibly and free of charge.

Accessing this e-learning via ESR means that completions will transfer with the learner throughout their NHS career.
