After 3 April, you will need to be registered on e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) to start any new e-learning for the NHS Screening Programmes.
Once you have signed up, not only will you have access to all online training for the NHS Screening Programmes, you will also have access to all other e-learning provided by Health Education England.
This approach means you will no longer have to sign up for each screening module individually. One username and password will provide the key to the digital part of your continuing professional development.
There are 2 ways to register for the site, depending on your role within the screening programmes:
- Standard registration.
- OpenAthens registration.
This route may be appropriate if you:
- work within the NHS
- work in a dental practice that provides NHS care
- work in a hospice or care home
- are a medical examiner
- work in the social care sector
- work in the Ministry of Defence
- are a qualified health visitor
- are employed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
Start the standard registration process.
Users who do not meet the criteria for standard registration must use the OpenAthens access route. This includes private providers who deliver services for the NHS.
This is a 2-step process:
- Read about the eligibility criteria and sign up for an OpenAthens account. This will give you a user name and password.
- Sign in to e-Learning for Healthcare using your OpenAthens username and password.
Whichever registration route is right for you, it should be a quick and simple process to get access to the e-Learning for Healthcare website. If you need any help with the process, lots of online support is available and there is even a live chat help function from the top banner of the e-LfH website.
