Bedside TV & Phone Service

You will find at most hospital beds that there is a personal TV and Phone for patients to use.

Each bedside TV has over 20 channels to choose from with radio (including hospital radio), and a personal phone which patients can use to make outgoing calls to friends and family. On most TVs there is Internet, a film service and hospital surveys. You may also find hospital information on there too.

Lots of the services are FREE and some require payment by either purchasing a paycard with cash from one of our vending machines around the hospital, or with credit/debit card by following the on screen instructions. For those services that need payment, there are loads of different bundles to choose from to suit both length of stay and pocket!

Every TV has on-screen and printed instructions to show you how to get started.

If you have any problems just pick up the phone, follow the instructions, and you’ll be connected (free of charge) to our friendly Customer Care Team who help you with whatever you need. They are there to help you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Bedside TV and Phone Service is provided by Hospedia, and if you would like more information please go to the Hospedia website or call 0344 848 9555
