CPD resources

CPD & e-Learning for Healthcare Science

The NES Healthcare Science team act as the national focus for Healthcare Science education and training in three ways: we commission training, we offer generic CPD and we quality monitor training departments. Our aim is to support a multi-profession repository for learning material information and resources to help you in your job, focusing on the relevant Healthcare Science stream and disciplines.

Using the links below you can access our current range of CPD and e-learning resources. However, please be aware that accessing these resources will require you to login to Turas Learn.

We are always interested in hearing from our HCS colleagues who have relevant learning materials, as we can work with you to convert such material into e-learning content. For further information, please visit our "How to develop e-Learning" page or alternatively contact us at HCS@nes.scot.nhs.uk
