We’ve worked with every NHS trust in the country since 2006, developing training which has gone on to save lives and improve the patient experience throughout the UK.

The healthcare sector is under pressure to deliver consistent, high-quality care and increase patient safety. These expectations also go hand in hand with ever increasing financial pressures and a consistent growth in service users.  

At a time when healthcare organisations are striving to make efficiency savings and improve patient safety, it is important that learning programmes can be effective at delivering on both fronts. Virtual College has worked with every NHS Trust and a number of private healthcare organisations, hospices and care homes to develop a set of quality online training programmes designed specially to meet the needs of the health and social care sector.

All healthcare courses have been created by an award winning e-learning development team to ensure they deliver the learning objectives in an effective, time efficient way leading to high course compliance rates. Refresher quizzes can also be allocated to add to the effectiveness of the training and help maintain high compliance rates on an ongoing basis.
