How to login to Staff Zone
Staff Zone uses your AD login, so 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 you are working at home or externally without a VPN, or using your own device to access Staff Zone, you will need to download and use the authenticator app. Then you can log in using the same username you use to log in to a Trust computer (your AD login username).
Please note that if you have returned to work from leave other than holiday (i.e. maternity or sickness), your AD login we be re-activated, it may take 24-48hrs for the Staff Zone to recognise your login details.
Accessing 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/
Accessing Staff Zone 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 enrol the Sophos Authenticator App on your mobile or tablet.
This only needs to be done once but the enrolment 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 enrol the Authenticator. We recommend 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
How to set up the Authenticator
Whilst connected to the EKHUFT Network - access the IT Portal for instructions to download Sophos Authenticator to your personal device
Follow the instructions on how to enrol your device
Take note of your 4-digit PIN number that you set up
