We have detected that you are using Internet Explorer to visit this website. Internet Explorer is now being phased out by Microsoft. As a result, NHS Digital no longer supports any version of Internet Explorer for our web-based products, as it involves considerable extra effort and expense, which cannot be justified from public funds. Some features on this site will not work. You should use a modern browser such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. If you have difficulty installing or accessing a different browser, contact your IT support team.
Using unsupported systems makes your organisation more vulnerable to cyber security threats and makes it more likely that you’ll experience performance or reliability issues.
What this means
It is the responsibility of individual organisations to make sure their teams are using supported products.
If you use NHS CIS2 for your work
You may need to contact your local IT service desk to find out more about your organisation’s plan to switch off Internet Explorer and to ensure continued access to our services.
If you are responsible for managing IT in a health or care organisation
You should make sure you have a plan in place to withdraw Internet Explorer from your IT estate and install NHS Credential Management (HSCN connection required) for any users who require access to national NHS systems which require authentication.
Some alternative options are:
Use IE11 for the apps that require it, allow users to have a second user-agent (e.g. Edgium/Chromium) for other applications.
If "IE Mode" is being used, then only enable "IE Mode" for the applications that require it
If you can't move off of IE11
If you can't move off of IE11 by 31 March 2024, you need to contact us to discuss your situation.
