How to access your NHS ePortfolios account from the Turas Dashboard

Turas is NHS Education for Scotland’s (NES) single unified digital platform for health and social care professionals.   It provides – via a single secure sign on – a Dashboard where users can access their Turas applications without having to use/remember login credentials for each application.

As of now, Turas users can add an “NHS ePortfolios” tile to their Turas Dashboard, enabling them to quickly and easily access both their Turas applications and their NHS ePortfolios account without having to remember multiple sets of login credentials.

We believe this will be useful for:

  • Specialty trainees who have used Turas during Foundation training (in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Malta) but who are now using NHS ePortfolios.
  • Undergraduate medical students who have used NHS ePortfolios during their time at Medical School and who are now using Turas during Foundation training (in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Malta).
  • Supervisors who supervise both trainees in Foundation training via Turas and undergraduate medical students / specialty trainees via NHS ePortfolios.
  • Administrators who are responsible for supporting Foundation trainees via Turas (particularly relevant in Scotland) and also undergraduate medical students / specialty trainees in NHS ePortfolios.
  • Anyone who may complete ticket requests on behalf of both Turas and NHS ePortfolios users.

How to access your NHS ePortfolios account from the Turas Dashboard

1. Firstly, sign in to the Turas Dashboard at https://turasdashboard.nes.nhs.scot using your Turas username and password.  On your Turas Dashboard, you will notice a new link entitled “+ Add Applications” in the top right, above your existing dashboard tiles:

2. Click the new link entitled “+ Add Applications”, opening a pop-up entitled “Select your application”.

3. The “Select your application” pop-up will contain all the applications that are available to add to your Turas Dashboard. Click the “Add Application” button for “NHS ePortfolios”.  When clicked, the button will be replaced with a message indicating it has been added to your dashboard.

4. Click the “Done” button in the lower right corner of the “Select your application” pop-up to close the pop-up and return to your Turas Dashboard. Your Turas Dashboard will now include a new tile for “NHS ePortfolios”.

5. Click on the new “NHS ePortfolios” tile on your Turas Dashboard to enter the NHS ePortfolios application. The first time this is used, you will be prompted to enter the Username and Password for your NHS ePortfolios account.  Please provide these values then click the “Log In” button.

NOTE:     If you no longer remember your Password for NHS ePortfolios, you can click the Forgot Password? button, provide your email address, and a new password will be generated and sent to you via email.

6. Having successfully provided your details, you will then be logged-in to NHS ePortfolios, and placed into the role last used in your account. The link between your Turas account and your NHS ePortfolios account has now been established and when you next click the “NHS ePortfolios” tile on your Turas Dashboard you will automatically be logged-in to NHS ePortfolios without having to re-enter your NHS ePortfolios details.

 

7. Within NHS ePortfolios, you can always return to the Turas Dashboard at any time by selecting “Turas Dashboard” from the first drop down menu, entitled “Select Role”.
