The Trust is committed to keeping staff at all levels informed, involved and able to influence the development of the organisation and its services. We have various ways of doing this including a comprehensive intranet (internal website). Staff can view the Trust intranet but this will only work if you are logged on to an NHS networked computer. As well as accessing information via the intranet staff can also access some systems from home including the following:
The Trust’s Webmail system is designed to be accessed from any computer with an internet connection and Internet Explorer installed that is not on the NHS network. Please be aware that the NHS code of connection, network security and patient confidentiality rules still apply when connected to webmail. Please follow this guide to accessing Webmail. Access to Webmail is only available to Trust with a Trust email account and who have been given authorisation by their manager and completed an IT authorisation form. Please speak to your line manager or the IT team for advice. Staff are reminded that all email use should adhere to the guidelines set out in the email policy, which is designed to ensure proper use of the Trust’s email system and to make its users aware of what the Trust deems as acceptable and unacceptable use.
E-rostering systems provide the tools for managers to efficiently manage their service provision and staffs’ working time. It allows you to help manage your own work and leave. HealthRoster, our e-rostering system comes with an employee online facility. You are given a user name and password for this part of the e-rostering system, which allows you to:
- request a day off, view your published rosters and see when colleagues are working
- view your annual leave taken, planned, requested and request further annual leave.
- view your electronic time sheet before it is sent to payroll, check your mandatory training and contact details.
All e-rostering users, both substantive and bank staff, can access the employee online system from home and on their smartphone. The e-rostering team have documents to explain how to access the system from home and how to use the system properly:
If you have forgotten your employee online password or receive the message “your account has been suspended; please contact the system administrator” then please reset your password using the ‘forgotten password’ link on the login page.
For further issues please contact your unit e-rostering team or if you are bank staff, please contact the bank office. More information about e-rostering is available on our intranet.
Trust staff can access e-learning from outside the NHS or from another location such as home (known as remote access). Read the user guide for remote access. You must first login in to your e-learning account at work or via VPN token and click on ‘request internet access’. Please allow 24hours for the authorisation to be processed. You can then access your e-learning via the remote access login from any PC or tablet with internet access.

The Trust’s e-expenses system (EASY) can now be accessed from home or from non-Trust sites. This means that staff based in council buildings can now access the system from their workplace.
