Frequently Asked Questions

Can I access historical portfolio evidence?

A summarised timeline:

  • 03/08/2005: NHS e-Portfolios version 1 was launched and data recorded between 03/08/2005 and 05/08/2008 was recorded within NHS e-Portfolios version 1.
  • 06/08/2008: NHS e-Portfolios version 2 was launched. Data from completed training programmes was not copied from NHS e-Portfolios version 1 to NHS e-Portfolios version 2 when it was launched.
  • If you were an NHS e-Portfolios version 1 user, a user account was automatically created for you within NHS e-Portfolios version 2 and on the homepage of all roles within your account (including Foundation trainee, FSRH trainee and Physician trainee roles) was a button entitiled Historical e-Portfolio View that enabled you to access NHS e-Portfolios version 1 and the data therein.
  • If 10 years have elapsed from the end of the last active training programme within NHS e-Portfolios version 1, this site was terminated and the Historical e-Portfolio View button in NHS e-Portfolios version 2 that provided access to that site was removed in line with data protection/privacy regulations.

Do I need to complete the post assessment form on Turas?

This form is not mandatory for trainees in Scotland, however you can complete it if you wish.

Who can see the Post Assessment Questionnaire?

The Post Assessment Questionnaire can be seen by the trainee, their Foundation Programme Director and Administrators.

I am a doctor in a non-training post, is there a Portfolio I can use? 

If you are a non-Foundation trainee, for example in a Clinical Fellow post, you can request access to the Professional Portfolio which will allow you to gather and store assessments. Clinical Fellows are now able to set up the ‘Clinical Fellow’ profile themselves on Professional Portfolio. If they already have a Turas account please click here for the instructions and user guide. If they do not currently have a Turas account, they can register here.
