ePortfolio User Groups – a chance to be heard!

NHS ePortfolio is holding a series of user group meetings across the UK in late November 2012, open to all users of the ePortfolio but with a special interest in hearing from clinical staff.


The open meetings will serve a number of objectives including:
*    Disseminating the future plans for ePortfolio and building them in conjunction with feedback from all users
*    Providing an opportunity for users to speak their minds and share their ideas to improve the system
*    Giving users a chance to meet members of the ePortfolio team (technical, training and managerial) directly and informally
*    Offering a forum for users to present to peers and the ePortfolio team about their experience using the system


The following dates and venues have been set for the meetings. There is no charge and light refreshments will be provided.


 York 19th November 2012 10am – 2pm Lecture Theatre, Postgraduate Medical Education Centre, York Hospital , Wigginton Road, York, YO31 8HE
 London  20th November 2012 10am – 2pm Sherman Lecture Theatre, Sherman Education Centre, 4th floor, Southwark Wing, Guy’s Hospital, Great Maze Pond, London SE1 9RT
 Edinburgh  27th November 2012 10am – 2pm Westport 102, West Port, Edinburgh, EH3 9DN



(If there is interest in holding additional meetings in these or other locations, please contact us at  and we will try and schedule further events.)



We intend to keep these events as informal and interactive as possible. We expect the days to vary according to the interest of participants to present themselves, but each session will include brief presentations from various ePortfolio team staff on a variety of topics, as well as the chance to interact in small and large groups.


Spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis (the venues each hold around 40 people), with priority given to trainees, supervisors and programme directors.

To reserve your place please go to the online application form at the address below:

Please note that the form will be closed once the venue capacity is filled. You will receive confirmation if your application has been successful by 12th November 2012. Whilst the team would wish to respond to all unsuccessful applications personally, this is unfortunately not possible across such a large group.   If you do not receive confirmation of a place by Monday 12th November, it has not been possible to allocate you a space at your chosen venue on this occasion.
We look forward to meeting you.
