Accessing ePortfolio – get to the right log in page

It has come to our attention that a number of users, instead of clicking a bookmark to the site or typing https://www.nhseportfolios.org into the address bar of their browser, access our site by searching for terms such as “NHS ePortfolio” in search engines such as Google or Bing, and then clicking links in the search results page these sites choose to provide.

When navigating to the site in this way, the results page provided by these third party sites can often include links to alternate instances of our main site in which users login credentials do not work, but which look very similar to our main site, causing you confusion/frustration.  (Please note, these results vary on a per user basis and are not consistent in their content).

As part of development and testing there exists alternative ePortfolio versions that contain test accounts and test data. If you attempt to log in to one of these alternative sites will find that your user name and password, and your email address, are not recognised.

These alternate sites can be easily identified as they have different addresses which will appear in the address bar of the browser when accessing the site. What you should see is “www.nhseportfolios.org”.

Whilst the contents of the results pages in the search engines are not controlled by NES, we are contacting the major search engines to remove links to alternate instances of our site to reduce this possible source of confusion.

In the interim, please ensure that you are visiting the main site at the following address:
https://www.nhseportfolios.org

If  you continue to experience/report login issues, please first confirm that you are visiting https://www.nhseportfolios.org and, if problems persist, please contact Support and provide a full screengrab where possible to assign with identifying the issue.
