About Us

Welcome to Education for Health, the world's leading charity to focus on the education of health professionals as a key factor in improving patient health and quality of life. Our mission is to take action, educate people and transform lives worldwide.

In January 2015, Respiratory Education UK joined with Education for Health under the umbrella organisation, the Education for Health Group.

Taking action

Education for Health were the first to promote the role of practice nursing and to provide high quality education to enable practice nurses to extend their roles. This innovative spirit continues to inform all of our activities, ensuring that we continue to provide high quality health professional education and training, right across the world:

  • We advocate the importance of continuous professional education in raising quality standards and in sustaining a world class health service
  • As more services shift into primary care, we continue to expand our health and social care training to the whole multidisciplinary team.  We make it easy for you to organise healthcare training in your area, go to Run a Course page

*National Respiratory Training Center (NRTC) in the USA was the sister organisation of Education for Health in the UK.  It trained allied health professionals throughout the US to improve the care of patients with respiratory and allergic disease.  As an independent, nonprofit organization, its training programs promoted use of practice guidelines, empowering allied health professionals to take an active role within their practice. The NRTC has now transferred operations to the UK. For enquiries, contact +44 (0)1926 493313 or use our Contact Us form.
