What is Horus

All foundation doctors are required to use an electronic portfolio (e-portfolio) during their foundation training. There are two providers used to deliver the Foundation Programme e-portfolio across the UK: NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and Health Education England (HEE) – the e-portfolios are known respectively as Turas and Horus.

Horus is the e-portfolio for foundation doctors in England, introduced in August 2017.
