Terms and conditions


The eLearning Hub, and all information contained in it, is provided on an 'as is' basis, and is intended for medical professionals. It is provided without warranty of any kind, express or implied.

We rely on our authors to confirm the accuracy of the information presented and therefore we as the publisher, and our editors, cannot warrant its accuracy. Users should be aware that professionals in the field may have different opinions. Because of this and also because there are regular advances in medical research, we strongly recommend that readers independently verify facts. Ultimately it is the readers' responsibility to make their own professional judgements. Description or reference to a product or publication does not imply endorsement of that product or publication, unless it is owned by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and in which case it is subject to the relevant disclaimers.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Royal College of Psychiatrists is not responsible for any losses, injury or damage caused to any person or property (including under contract, by negligence, products liability or otherwise) whether they be direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential, resulting from the application of the information on this website.


To the fullest extent permitted by law, we will not be liable for any direct or indirect or consequential losses (including loss of profit, revenue, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure) other than when your subscription cannot be fulfilled, following conclusion of a binding contract and in which case the Royal College of Psychiatrists shall be liable only for the fees paid for the subscription.


eLearning Hub resources contain links which may take you outside the site. Links are provided for your convenience, and inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement or approval by us of the linked website (other than where this is another Royal College of Psychiatrists website), its operator or its contents, and we are not responsible for the content of any such website.

Changes to service or amendments to conditions

The Royal College of Psychiatrists reserves full editorial control over resources on the eLearning Hub and may make changes to the website during the subscription period. We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and terms and conditions at any time. You shall be subject to the policy's terms and conditions in force at the time that you use the website. If any of these conditions are deemed invalid, void or unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any other condition.

Events beyond our reasonable control

To the fullest extent permitted by law we will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if such delay or failure arises from any causes which is beyond our reasonable control including reasons of Force Majeure which shall include any default due to an act of God, war, threatened war, act of terrorism or threatened terrorism, lock out, individual action, fire, flood, drought, tempest or other event beyond our reasonable control. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.

Personal accounts

Your right of access is personal to you, for as long as your subscription is valid or for as long as we choose to allow such access (where free). Personal accounts may not be shared, and you are responsible for preventing unauthorised access to your account. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

Suitability for CPD

Note that under the Royal College of Psychiatrists' CPD arrangements, final approval of any CPD activity lies with your peer group. We aim to ensure that the material on this site is of a suitable standard for use for CPD activities, but individual needs will vary and your peer group will have the final say as to whether a particular module is relevant to your requirements.


Once access to eLearning Hub resources has been granted, if you wish to cancel any subscription you purchase through RCPsych, cancellation shall be at our discretion and if accepted may be subject to a cancellation charge.

Changes of subscription category

CPD eLearning has a Members' and a non-Members' subscription rate. If you have subscribed at the non-Members' rate but then become eligible for the Members' discounted rate during the subscription term we will be happy to extend your subscription to account for the excess money paid. We will double the number of months remaining on the subscription from the time you became eligible for the discount. Please contact the eLearning team to request this as this will not be done automatically.

We are unfortunately not able to provide refunds if you have purchased an individual subscription and subsequently become part of a group subscription.
