D2L Expands Medical and Healthcare Footprint in the UK

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, British Society of Lifestyle Medicine and other associations are choosing D2L to help deliver high-quality educational experiences 

LONDON – 29 NOVEMBER, 2023 – D2L, a global learning technology company, is helping more British and Irish medical and healthcare associations to train, develop and upskill their professionals while helping to raise standards in the industry—through the adoption of its award-winning learning innovation platform. 

The National Health Service (NHS) recently demonstrated a strong commitment to staff development with its Long-Term Workforce Plan, which recognises the importance of upskilling and retention across the healthcare sector. By encouraging lifelong learning and professional growth, healthcare providers are able to better meet complex and evolving healthcare needs while helping motivate and retain its essential workforce. 

“We’re pleased to see so many medical and healthcare associations investing in modern learning platforms to help improve education and professional development,” said Stewart Watts, Vice President, EMEA, D2L. “In line with the NHS Long-Term Workforce Plan, this commitment to learning can empower healthcare professionals to upskill and adapt to the ever-changing healthcare landscape. By embracing a highly accessible and flexible learning innovation platform like D2L Brightspace, these associations are paving the way for enhanced knowledge sharing, continuous professional development and improved patient care.”
