Tweet Chat about the App – How do you use it?

On Wednesday 7th May at 7pm (BST) we shall be running our second Twitter Chat (#nhsep) about the NHS ePortfolio mobile app. At least two members of the ePortfolio team will be there to help things along, answer questions and provide any inside knowledge.

We’d really like to know how people use the app in a working environment: do you make use of ticketing, or creating logs, or both? And if you don’t use the app is there a reason why not? Are there any must-have features that are missing?

Feel free to join in with your experiences and opinions, or just follow the conversation from the side lines. Just use the hash tag #nhsep to search and in any tweets.

UK-wide specialty selection test pilot for ST1/CT1

A Specialty Selection Test is going to be piloted from 13-25 January 2014 for ST1/CT1 applicants, across most specialties. This test will include a Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) test and a Situational Judgement Test (SJT).
Health Education England is working with the devolved nations, Work Psychology group and academics in the University College of London Medical School to pilot the SST. The purpose of this pilot is to evaluate and improve the selection processes currently used. We will also continue to follow applicant progression for a number of years, to ensure a long-term robust evaluation. Ultimately, we want to assess whether these tests are a good predictor of a doctor’s performance throughout their training and to ensure the selection process is reliable, valid, fair and cost-effective.
We are seeking doctors’ help to participate and provide feedback about the pilot test. By participating you will be able to provide your views on this selection method, you will receive a certificate for your portfolio and you will also be eligible to win one of five prizes, which include a 32GB iPad or Kindle Fire HD.
Further information about the SST can be found on the specialty training website (www.specialtytraining.nhs.uk) or you can email us directly at hee.mdrs@nhs.net.

Administrators are unable to view list of supervisors for the posts

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM

Please be aware we are looking into a problem, since this morning, where Administrators locating a trainees  account via the ‘Administer Post’ page cannot see the list of supervisors for the posts.

Supervisors can still create and complete forms, and they ARE still attached, but Administrators cannot see the list from the front of the page.

 

WHAT IS THE WORKAROUND

There are 3 ways administrators can find which supervisors linked to trainee:

(1)    Search Trainee

(2)    Administrator Posts

(3)    Administrator Users

 

WHEN WILL THIS BE FIXED

This is being worked on and a fix date will be released asap. Please use the workaround until advised.
