Hospedia, our bedside system

All patients have access to Hospedia's easy to use bedside system, giving access to telephone, films and basic internet service.

Our bedside terminal provider, Hospedia, has changed some of their pricing for services;

  • Outbound calls are free (but limited for calls to mobiles)
  • Outbound landline calls to 01/02/03 numbers are free and unlimited.
  • Calls to mobiles are free, but capped at 2 minutes, with no limit on the number of times each mobile number is called.
  • Inbound calls to patients from relatives will incur costs.

If a person calls a patient from a landline or mobile, Hospedia charges 13p per minute to cover the cost of running the service. However, the person calling may be charged up to 78p per minute because your network operator charges up to 65p per minute. Hospedia never receives more than 13p per minute.

Free radio services
