core function users can opt in to use other browsers on their landing portal (the ability to opt in is enabled by the employer organisation)
NHS Smartcard users need to ensure the NHS Credential Management and Identity Agent v2.3 are installed
NHS employees accessing ESR Self Service are able to use other browsers with no additional configuration.
