Putting our patients at the heart of everything we do
Free patient WiFi now available
02 April 2019 - Free patient Wi-Fi has now been rolled out across the Trust
Free patient WiFi has now been rolled out across the Trust – so that patients and visitors can access internet when attending our three hospitals, this has been made possible by the support of King’s College Hospital Charity.
The WiFi, is available free of charge to all visitors and patients 24 hours a day at King’s College Hospital, Princess Royal University Hospital and Orpington Hospital.
The free WiFi can be accessed by selecting the Patient Wifi tab, which should appear automatically on your tablet or phone. It will then prompt you to enter your name and email address.
Gail Scott-Spicer, chief executive of King’s College Hospital Charity, said: “We are delighted to fund this service for the hundreds of thousands of patients and visitors at our hospitals . We know that being in hospital can sometimes be a difficult experience, so I hope free WiFi will help improve the experience for both our patients and visitors. There is lots of useful information and our visitors can also find out more about the Charity and the benefits we deliver to patients.”
Lisa Hollins, Director of Improvement, Informatics and ICT said: “We are always looking to improve our hospital environment for patients and visitors – and we hope the patient Wi-Fi will be of huge use to them. The launch of the new Wi-Fi service has paid for by the King’s College Hospital Charity and we must thank them for their support and contribution of this project.”
Patients accessing the WiFi can use the service to view the menu for inpatients, find out about wards, the chaplaincy and to leave feedback about services, as well as accessing the internet more widely.
