Grammar for Healthcare now CPD-accredited!

We’re delighted to announce that SLC’s new course, Essential Grammar for Healthcare, has been accredited by the CPD Standards Office in the UK.

This means that the course has been analysed by training experts and found to meet the quality criteria set by the CPD Standards Office.


All SLC’s courses undergo this external quality assurance check so learners and educational partners are reassured that the courses are well-written, accurately described and achieve the learning results they state.

Essential Grammar for Healthcare is a 30-unit course set at an elementary and lower-intermediate level (A2-B1 on the CEFR) and is divided into 2 parts. It teaches the foundations of English language structure and how to use key language structures in a healthcare environment.


The first 15 units cover different verb forms, including present, past, future, conditional and passive. The second 15 units cover key language functions, including asking questions, using articles, adverbs and adjectives, giving advice, making requests, suggestions and offers, and using prepositions correctly.

Ros Wright

The course was written by internationally-renowned English for Healthcare author, Ros Wright, whose books are used by universities and schools around the world. It uses video, audio and a wide variety of activities so healthcare students see how grammar is used in practice – from conversations with staff and patients, to reports, leaflets and texts, to discussions on a wide variety of healthcare topics, including Covid-19.

Students who compete Essential Grammar for Healthcare receive an internationally-recognised, CPD-badged certificate for 30 CPD points/hours with details of what the course consists of and at what level of English.
