About the NHSE elfh Hub
The Hub delivers a wide variety of e-learning resources to a large audience including NHS staff, social care staff and members of the public. In order to ensure individuals using the Hub have access to appropriate e-learning resources, the Hub will allocate a user with a user type when you register. Find out more about user types
In order to allow different organisations to present their learning in a way that supports their branding and makes the learning recognisable to their audience, we have extended the Hub to introduce the concept of multiple tenancies available on a variety of URLs or links. Each tenancy allows the branding or ‘skin’ of the Hub to be themed to different colours matching an organisations colours or branding. Find out more about the available tenants.
In order to ensure the maximum visibility of the e-learning resources available on the e-LfH Hub and its tenants, we have introduced a catalogue which can be browsed before a user has logged in or registered. Find out more about the e-learning available via the catalogue.
What are the different user types?
The NHSE elfh Hub allows for different types of users to access different sets of programmes relevant to their role or organisation. This is determined by email address or additional validation at the time of registration. We refer to these different groups of users as user types.

What is a tenant?

What is the catalogue?
The catalogue allows you to browse the e-learning programmes and courses available on each tenant. You can see the structure of the programmes and obtain additional information by clicking on the blue information icon. This icon is available at programme, course and session level.
For some programmes that are designed for use by a wider audience, you can play the sessions without logging in, but we recommend that if you require tracking and reporting of your learning activity, please try registering and then logging on.
Other programmes, that are more specialised, require appropriate registration so are not available to be played via the catalogue without logging on.
How do I get access to use the elearning resources on the catalogue?
For those programmes that do not have a play button beside the session, you will need to register for access. Depending on your email address and job role, you will be able to enrol on applicable programmes.
Is there any e-learning content I can access without registering with NHSE elfh?
There are several programmes that are available for access without registering and logging in to your account which are listed below.
NOTE: If you access content without logging in to your account, then there will be no record of your activity.
