Moodle Workplace creates accessible courses for 60,000 NHS healthcare workers and volunteers during Covid-19

Synergy Learning NHS Case Study

The University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust (UHB) is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England, serving a regional, national and international population.

The Trust sees and treats more than 2.2 million people every year across their sites and their hospitals deliver more babies than anywhere else in Europe.

Considering the impact of Covid-19 across the world, UHB made the decision and commitment to invest in further development for their staff for the best interests of their health and well-being.

The Challenge

The University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust required urgent support to meet the demand of the rapidly increasing number of cases of Covid-19 across its hospitals.

They needed to build an online learning platform that could offer accessible courses to NHS staff to upskill and learn more about COVID-19 alongside general medical practice and procedures.

After undergoing consultations with Certified Premium Moodle Partner Synergy Learning, Moodle Workplace was implemented across the organisation as the online learning platform to support the induction and course delivery for up to 60, 000 healthcare workers and volunteers.

      Hi Claire,

      We make the Moodle software, but we don’t have access to or manage NHS’s Moodle site. Please get in touch with someone at NHS for help, they should be able to let you know how to log in to their learning site and obtain your badge.
