All rooms are furnished to ensure your privacy and comfort with duvets, Freeview TV, free internet access, a small refrigerator, a bedside telephone (BT standard charges apply) and you will get a complimentary daily newspaper. The en-suite facilities have walk-in showers to facilitate bathing for patients whose condition makes it difficult for them to use a bath; this is particularly useful for patients in wheelchairs.
Nurse call system
The nurse call system enables you to summon help whenever you need it. You can do this by pressing the orange button on the handset next to your bedside locker. This comes up on the screen at the nurses’ desk.
A telephone is provided in your room so that you can keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues. Calls will be charged to your personal account on a metered basis and are charged at standard BT rates. You are also welcome to use your mobile phone.
Your room has a colour television that can be operated by the separate remote control unit, or manually on the set itself. The televisions offer Freeview channels.
Free Wi-fi is available on the private patient unit.
