NHS Digital Staff Passport - Testing Opportunity

NHS England and NHS Improvement are seeking Foundation Doctors to help test the first prototypes for the Digital Staff Passport. Anyone who participates will get a certificate for their portfolios upon request. Further details below:

Development work for the digital staff passport has now commenced and foundation doctors are invited to participate by contributing to a session (approximately one hour) to provide feedback on the initial prototype design. If this is of interest and you can spare the time, please contact the User Researcher, Nike Bada, by email ( 

The prototype is not the final offering. This is an opportunity to share initial ideas based on feedback from the initial discovery research, and for you to share what you would expect and like to see delivered with the team to inform the design and development of the final product.

Research Goals

  • Understand how users interact with the DSP (Digital Staff Passport) designed prototype; to gauge how useful the service is for users.
  • Understand how the COVID-19 Digital Staff Passport has impacted staff movements and how this can be enhanced to ensure we are meeting user needs from a wider clinical perspective and not just covid resourcing requirements.
  • Understand how the digital staff passport can quickly and efficiently ensure staff movements are streamlined and efficient without unnecessary administrative and procedural delays
  • To improve the team’s understanding of users, their needs and pain points so this can be captured in our designs.

Overall, this helps ensure that prototype design is centred around the user’s needs.

Timelines & Logistics
Session Dates: Weekly Wednesday & Thursdays (Can be changed to suit user availability)
Duration: 60 Minutes
Location: Microsoft Teams
Consent: Consent and Information sheets will be sent to each participant prior to the session which must be signed and returned before the session.
