NHS Education for Scotland

A skilled and sustainable workforce for a healthier Scotland

Remote and rural healthcare education alliance (RRHEAL)

The remote and rural healthcare educational alliance (RRHEAL) coordinates healthcare education, development and training for all the remote, rural and island areas of Scotland.

What we do

The Remote and Rural Healthcare Educational Alliance (RRHEAL) designs, delivers and advises on remote, rural and island inclusive healthcare education across Scotland.

We support increased access to education and training for multi-disciplinary rural teams using a blend of at distance technology enhanced learning and in person approaches.

We believe that using digital technologies combined with in person learning when required offers the best blend for ongoing learning to support our remote and rural workforce to deliver high quality care.

Education and training programmes

We work with a range of partners across Scotland and internationally to coordinate remote, rural and island education development, in accordance with the NES Remote and Rural Inclusive Education Policy This includes provision of:

  • ongoing access to all RRHEAL educational resources
  • learning resources for multidisciplinary staff
  • accessible education sessions via video conferencing and other technologies

Turas Learn is the sole point of access for all RRHEAL educational resources, supporting inclusive and at distance education for rural teams.
