Notice and takedown policy

While the eLearning Repository team shall use all reasonable care and diligence in making eLearning objects available, we provide no warranty regarding the accuracy of the materials found in the eLearning Repository or their fitness for any particular purpose.

The provision of any URL or link is done for the convenience of users of the eLearning Repository. It does not constitute an endorsement.

To help us maintain a high quality, please inform us if you suspect a resource is inaccurate or in breach of copyright, either yours or that of a third party. You can report these things by sending an email with details of the nature of your complaint to elearningsupport@yas.nhs.uk.

Please include your contact details and specific details of the material in question (e.g. title, author, URL, etc.)

On receipt of a complaint we will follow the below process:

  • Make an initial assessment of the validity of the complaint
  • Withdraw the item in question from public view while we investigate the complaint
  • Return a written acknowledgment that the complaint has been received
  • The complaint will then be reviewed by the eLR project team. If the grounds of the complaint are considered plausible, the material will be either permanently withdrawn or necessary changes will be made to the satisfaction of all parties before the material is returned to the eLearning Repository

If you have any questions about this policy, please let us know.
