Most of our hospital beds have a personal TV, radio and phone for patients to use.

Each unit has over 20 channels to choose from, with radio (including Hospital Radio) and a personal phone which patients can use to make outgoing calls.

Many of the services are free but some require payment by either purchasing a Paycard with cash from one of the vending machines around the hospital or with credit/debit card by following the on-screen instructions.

If you get stuck, pick up a bedside phone and you'll be connected free to a Customer Care Team who are available to help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

For services which need payment, there are different bundles to choose from to suit your length of stay in hospital and pocket.
