On 4th October 2016, Jeremy Hunt announced plans to increase medical school places by 25% by 2018. This is under a new plan to make England self sufficient in training doctors. While this is an admirable strategy, there are challenges that come with this. Under this new plan, there is increasing pressure for Health Education England (HEE) to provide training. And what's more, HEE has had its budget cut by 9%. This rise in training places of 25% will cost the government an additional £100m.

We recently published our case study about Ko Awatea and Counties Manukau District Health Board’s (CMDHB) Totara LMS, LEARN, thought to be one of the largest learning platforms in New Zealand, which is breaking down silos in the fragmented New Zealand healthcare sector with a collaboratively built and maintained LMS. The LEARN platform is a fantastic success story with tangible results being felt across New Zealand, and I wanted to share how the our open, collaborative approach is proving beneficial to district health boards (DHBs) and patients across a significant part of New Zealand.
Totara LMS is a popular choice for healthcare organisations, as it’s cost effective, flexible and highly customisable. Learning management systems are a fantastic way to help organisations monitor and track learners in this budget-constrained, ever-changing sector, but it’s not always easy getting senior management on board. So if you are looking to implement an LMS in your healthcare organisation, how do you go about securing support for it?
