2 July 2019

- 2019-21 F1F2 cohort

• See June 2019 Updates page for administrator actions required now

• Near the end of July 2019, administrators may wish to send activation emails to new foundation doctors 

• New foundation doctors can also activate their own account by using the password reset process

• Most new foundation doctor accounts include their GMC, which for most won't be live on the GMC register until the end of July. Doctors who log in before their GMC registration is live will see a warning message on their account. No action needs to be taken - Horus will synchronise all new GMC numbers once they're live in the register.

 - New/updated features release plan:

• E-LfH "deep links" have been added to the curriculum (FDs/NTGs can now navigate directly to a relevant e-LfH module from their Horus curriculum)

• A number of new forms and processes have been scheduled to be available on 1 August 2019

• We are focussing on getting all UK-wide new requirements in place by the start of the training year - there will be no new functionality released until the end of July 2019.
