How to Login to new Staff Zone

On a EKHUFT computer or device

If you are using a Trust computer on a Trust site, or using an EKHUFT computer remotely via VPN, Staff Zone should pop up automatically when you access the internet.

If not, you can find it at https://staff.ekhuft.nhs.uk/

On a non-EKHUFT computer / personal device

To access the new Staff Zone from a non-EKHUFT device or computer you will need to download and enroll the Sophos Authenicator App on your mobile or tablet.

This only needs to be done once but the enrollment stage of the process must be performed on an EKHUFT computer or laptop that is connected to the East Kent Hospitals network. Users who are unable to connect remotely will need to attend an East Kent connected site in order to enroll the Authenticator. We reccomned that you use a connected EKHUFT computer for the whole process so that you can access the IT Portal for download instructions and then enrol your device.

You will also need to know your AD login username - this is the username that you use to login to any EKHUFT computer
