How to I reset my password?

Your password for the Referrals Gateway is governed by your organisation. This means your login uses the same network credentials you would use to login in your workplace.

If you require a password reset, please consult your organisation's guidelines, or contact your own IT Department for advice.

Resetting your MFA

  • How do I reset my MFA?
  • I have a new device, or I have reset my phone - what do I do?
  • I can't connect and the Authenticator app won't accept my normal credentials

For all of these scenarios, it is recommended to have your MFA reset. This includes new or lost devices, or connection issues.

To reset your MFA, please reach out to the Referrals Gateway helpdesk. The team will reset your MFA and contact you when complete.
