There are two ways to access the e-LfH Hub, which determines whether or not you need to register:
If you hold an OpenAthens account, you do not need to re-register with e-LfH as you will find e-Learning for Healthcare under the resources area of your OpenAthens account.
e-LfH Hub and its Tenants
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 e-LfH Tenant has it's own registration area.
Information required to Register
- Work email address
In order to register you will need to provide us with a valid email address. If you wish to access the hub due to your job role and responsibilities, please provide your work email address as this will help us to determine which e-learning programmes can be made available to you. Full access to the e-learning is available if you self-register using a valid @nhs.net, @gov.uk, @ac.uk email suffix. Failure to do so may prevent you gaining access to the programmes you are looking for. If your email address is not one of the recognised UK healthcare / student email extensions (for example @uhb.nhs.uk, @hscni.net, @ac.uk), we may require additional information for validation. Once you have provided the necessary validation, you will also be required to provide the following information:
- Current role
You will be required to identify your current role. Enter the beginning of your role title into the 'Current role' field to begin your search.
- Place of work
Most NHS buildings and organisations have a location specific code called an ODS code. If you know your ODS code you can enter the ODS code into the 'Place of work' field to begin your search. If you don't know your ODS code you can enter the postcode of your organisation into the 'Place of work field to begin your search.
Note: we do require a place of work to be entered to complete this step for those registering for full access to the e-LfH Hub.
Accessing your new account
On submitting this form, you will be sent an email containing a link to create a password on your account. The email will come from email@example.com and may go into the spam or junk folder. The link to set a confidential password will last for two weeks after which it can be reset from https//portal.e-lfh.org.uk/forgotten-password.
If you experience any difficulty registering, please contact the e-LfH Support Team.
