Getting the most out of your e-portfolio

All foundation doctors now have access to an electronic portfolio (e-portfolio). There are two e-portfolio providers used to deliver the Foundation Programme e-portfolio across the UK: NES and Horus. Since August 2017, all foundation schools in England will use Horus and all foundation schools in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland use Turas (provided by NES). You will find the contact details below for any enquiries you may have regarding your e-portfolio:

Turas: contact.digital@nes.scot.nhs.uk

Horus: enquiries.horus@hee.nhs.uk

Your foundation school will provide you with the information you need on how to access your portfolio such as website address, log-in details and password. The exact format of each e-portfolio may vary but they generally include the following sections:

  • Personal and Professional Development Plan (PDP)
  • Meetings with your educational and clinical supervisors
  • Assessments
  • Supervised Learning Events (SLEs)
  • Reflective reports and other evidence
  • ARCP
