Free COVID-19 e-learning programme

Nurse working on computer

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has created an e-learning programme in response to COVID-19.

The programme is free to access for the entire UK health and care workforce, including those working in the NHS, the independent sector and social care.

The programme includes key materials to help the health and care workforce respond to COVID-19.

Content in the programme currently includes:

  • essential guidance from the NHS, government and WHO
  • infection prevention and control
  • personal protection equipment
  • critical care resources
  • RCGP learning
  • invasive ventilation
  • intensive care medicine
  • anaesthesia
  • induction of international and returning GPs
  • statutory and mandatory training

The programme currently includes limited resources, but more content will be added in the coming days and weeks.

For more information about the programme, which is free for the health and care workforce to access without the need to register, visit

A note about logging in.
HEE e-LfH has removed the requirement to log in to access the COVID-19 programme, to make it as easy as possible for the health and care workforce to access the learning resources. However, accessing the content without logging in means that learning activity won’t be tracked and won’t create a learning record. If you would like your teams to have a learning record to demonstrate compliance, they will need to have an e-LfH account and be logged in. 

Another HEE resource, SCRIPT e-learning, is now freely available to anyone with a NHS email address. For more information visit, email or follow @safeprescriber on Twitter.
