Bedside Entertainment

To help relieve the boredom of hospital stays, keep in touch with loved-ones and improve your overall experience of the health service, patients can choose to have their own personal television and telephone at their bedside.

Patient Bedside Entertainment System

Each bedside TV has over 20 channels to choose from with radio, games, internet, films, and a personal phone which patients can use to make outgoing calls to friends and family, plus outgoing calls are free with any bundle purchase, helping you to keep in touch.

Lots of the services are free and some require payment by either purchasing a paycard with cash from one of our many vending machines around the hospital, or with credit/debit card by following the on screen instructions.  Different bundles and prices are available for the paid for services to suit a patient’s length of stay.

Every TV has on-screen instructions to show you how to get started, which only takes a moment. If you get stuck just press the operator button on the bedside phone.

The bedside TV and phone service is provided by Hospedia, and if you would like more information please go to, call 0845 414 1234, or pick up a leaflet from one of our vending machines.
