e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and Professional Bodies to support patient care by providing free, high quality e-learning for the training and education of the healthcare workforce across the UK.

e-LfH is currently developing and delivering more than 90 e-learning programmes in partnership with the Royal Colleges, other professional healthcare organisations, Department of Health policy teams and the NHS.

e-LfH e-learning is available free of charge to all relevant users in health and social care across the NHS family, thus facilitating multidisciplinary training and teamwork.

From audiology to anaesthesia, dentistry to dermatology, electronic fetal monitoring to end of life care, primary care to prescribing, e-LfH's e-learning programmes contribute to the revolution in UK medical and healthcare training by providing 24/7 access to online, nationally quality-assured materials. The online training sessions enhance traditional learning, support existing teaching methods and provide a valuable reference point. Sessions are designed and built to be engaging and interactive, and use high quality images, video, audio and animation to help users understand and retain knowledge. Content is presented using a variety of templates such as ‘real-life’ scenarios, case studies, ‘knowledge bites’, MCQs and e-libraries.

The e-LfH platform records user activity, enabling users to run reports on all their learning activity and build a transferable life-long learning portfolio. Reports can be viewed online, or downloaded in PDF or Excel formats for use offline. Some programmes offer certificates and some feed reports automatically to their associated e-portfolios, and, with appropriate permissions, trainers and employers can run reports on discrete groups of users.

The e-LfH programme has won many industry awards for e-learning best practice, and is proud to have been described as “transforming medical education for the 21st century”.
