What is Migrating?

2. If you are signed in with your @hscic.gov.uk account, select ‘Sign in with a different account’.

3. Sign in with your @nhs.net credentials (and approve a multi-factor authentication request if required)


  • Re-link your previous OneNote documents to your new nhs.net environment
  • Access your OneNote notebooks either via:
    • Desktop app:
      1. Go to ‘File’ and select ‘Open’
      2. Find your notebook within your nhs.net OneDrive
    • Browser:
      1. Sign in to portal.office.com on the browser with your nhs.net credentials and go to OneNote via the waffle.
      2. Select My Notebooks and open the notebook you would like
      3. Select ‘Editing’ and then ‘Open in Desktop app’
      4. Select ‘Open’, if prompted to choose an app, select OneNote (not the Windows 10 version).
