Does NHSE elfh guarantee a certain level of support for the users of its service?
The support team has in place a number of service level agreements which set standards for query resolution times.
The majority of support requests concern password resets, registration enquiries and general support using the systems.
For these three areas, you should expect your enquiry to be resolved within 8 working hours. The clock on those 8 hours begins when you send in your enquiry. However, the clock is stopped at 5:00pm and resumes at 9:00am the following morning during a normal working week (Monday to Friday).
- If you send an enquiry at 9.00 am on Friday morning, your enquiry should be resolved by 5:00 pm on Friday afternoon.
- If you send an enquiry at 2:00 pm on Friday afternoon, your enquiry should be resolved by 2:00 pm on Monday afternoon.
To resolve a query contact the support team via the Support site.
Further assistance is also available via Live Chat.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
NHS England is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
Some links use inappropriate language for people using a screen reader.
We plan to correct these issues by the beginning of 2021. When we publish new content we’ll make sure it meets accessibility standards.
We do not believe any issues on this site fall into this area currently, however, we will keep this under review.
Interactive tools and transactions
Our interactive form is difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
We are investigating the issue with a view to resolve it by the end of September 2020.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our older PDFs do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2.
Some of our PDFs are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services. By the beginning of 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
