NHS Care Identity (Smartcard) Sign in
If you have an NHS Care Identity (Smartcard) account, you will be able to use this to access the NHSmail Portal, your emails, Microsoft Teams and other Office 365 collaboration applications via compatible web browsers. Use 'My Identity Portal' to pre-register and link your NHS accounts to be ready for this new feature.
Private vs. public settings in Microsoft Teams
It is very important to consider the implications of choosing settings as 'public' or 'private' in Teams as this setting allows you to manage sharing content with NHSmail users via Teams.
NHSmail account - use it or lose it
Both the 'active' AND 'inactive' periods for unused accounts are being reduced from 90 to 30 days from 1 December 2022. Ensure that you regularly use your NHSmail account to avoid losing it
Introducing User Account Secret
We are enhancing NHSmail by introducing a User Account Secret for new NHSmail accounts. A User Account Secret is a memorable word chosen by the user during the account creation process.
This function replaces the 'Security Questions and Answers' used by Local Administrators to authenticate users.
