NHS Login Sandpit - Null refresh token


We have been using the NHS Login sandpit environment for doing testing and yesterday the service stopped sending refresh tokens in the OpenID protocol.

Can anyone tell me if this is error or change that is going to be replicated in live?

Hi Liam,

Thanks for getting in touch!
We’re looking into this, and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience.


Hi Liam, i’ve chased this for you as there has been no response from the NSH Login team as yet.

I actually managed to get in contact with them through Slack. There was indeed a change and now you have to specify you want a refresh token when requesting access.
