Guidance notes and support
We have become aware of an issue with the Provider Portal and Internet Explorer 10. If you are using Internet Explorer 10 you may find that when you click the 'Edit' link on a child's record that nothing happens and you cannot enter the details of each child.

Once you have clicked this button, the website will allow you to enter all details. If you have any issues with this button another solution is to use a different browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari.
