Signing in and out
Signing in basics
- How do I sign in to my account?
- How do I access my account for the first time?
What will my activation email look like?
Your Horus ePortfolio activation email will look like this:
Subject: Horus ePortfolio account has been created
For foundation doctors in England
Dear [Your name]
An account has been created for you on the Horus ePortfolio. Please go to Horus and set your first password to gain access to your account.
If you prefer not to click links in emails, you can request your own account activation email by typing https://horus.hee.nhs.uk/account/reset-password/request into your browser (or searching for ‘Horus ePortfolio reset password’ in your preferred search engine, selecting the Horus ePortfolio Support link and following the on-screen instructions).
Thank you for your co-operation.
Horus is the ePortfolio for foundation doctors in England. It has been developed and is maintained by NHS Health Education England.
Please don't reply to this email address as it is not monitored.

Problems with signing in
What should I do if I can't sign in to my account?
1. you are attempting to sign in to the correct version of Horus
- The Health Education England version (used from August 2017 onwards) is at https://horus.hee.nhs.uk.
- The previously used version in the North West is at https://northwesthorusarchive.hee.nhs.uk/ (only use this if you are a former North West-based user looking for archived information).
2. you are using the correct email address and password.

--> If you are unsure of your password, but do know your registered email address, then reset your password.
How do I sign out of Horus?
The 'Sign out' button is in the top right corner of the page and it is accessible from every screen in the system.
Why do I need to sign out?
In order to protect your account and your e-portfolio contents, you should always sign out of the system when you have finished working. This is particularly important if you are working on a shared computer (e.g. in a hospital computer room).
The system will automatically sign you out after a period of inactivity.
