Often, messages can be resolved from information in these FAQs or by asking teams more suited to the query type.
First, use an ELHT device or turn your VPN on.

If you need details about a training session or e-learning course, there will be a nominated person who can answer your questions.
This person is the course contact listed on the course's start page, and in the course's search result entry.
Please contact them to cancel a session booking, even if it's late.
ELHT's Learning Hub may not allow you to cancel a session within about 2 days (48 hours) of the scheduled time.
However, the course contact or trainer will still need to know if you cannot attend. They may be able to offer the place to someone else.
E-mailling the TEL team to tell us you cannot attend only delays this information getting to them. You can still CC us in.
If you find incorrect information in a course, please write to both the course contact and the TEL team.
The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team manages the ELHT Learning Hub.
Part of EBSS, we are involved with the Inductions and Safer Handling Teams.
While we do receive many e-mails every day, we are here to help especially with Learning Hub.
Let us know if you have explored these FAQs and not found the answer.
(Please also mention how you searched, so we can improve the pages for everyone.)
We need to know the following before we can provide effective help.
We cannot assist you quickly or easily if you do not answer these questions.
Also: tell us which e-mail address you want messages sent to, like password resets or compliance information.
This can be your work address or a private email. (It should be one you will check when you next reset your password.)
If you have any accessibility needs or restrictions, please tell us.
We are describing this in detail because we understand everyone is facing increased pressure, so we'd like to streamline what we can.
Tell us something positive or encouraging, too!
Due to the nature of our work and the ongoing pandemic, we may not get as much face-to-face time with other teams as we could previously.
We want to stay in contact. Hearing your stories of what works is just as important as hearing what doesn't.
You can write messages to TEL@elht.nhs.uk.
(Please allow a bit longer for us to respond; we are still receiving many messages at present.)
LearningHub@elht.nhs.uk is no longer in use.
Please direct others to these FAQs and this page (https://deri.elht.nhs.uk/contact-advice) when you can.

What is an LMS?
An LMS is a Learning Management System.
This is a program that stores e-learning and completion data.
It's like a teacher's record book for attendance and grades, but on a computer instead of paper.
Learning Hub is East Lancashire Hospital Trust's LMS.
Our ELHT Learning Hub is different from the NHS Learning Hub.
Learning Hub has more help information in Help > User guides & Information.
