available to visitors at Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals
VISITORS can now benefit from Wi-Fi at
Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals.
Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust worked with Hospedia, the company that
supplies the bedside entertainment system to patients, to make Wi-Fi available
across the both sites.
Andrew Green, Facilities Manager for Technical Services, said:- "Mobile
phone reception in buildings like hospitals can be patchy at times so we hope
the option to switch to Wi-Fi will benefit our visitors. We do ask, however,
that visitors continue to refrain from using their phones on wards or clinical
areas as they can interfere with medical equipment." Each Wi-Fi user receives 15 minutes free airtime per day. Charges for additional
► 2 hours £2.50
► 24hours £5
► 1 week £15
► 1 month £28
Wi-Fi access is provided through Sky UK's The Cloud network for which
registration is needed. This can be done from any computer or mobile device.
