Many wards at King’s have a Hospicom bedside entertainment unit which is provided and maintained by HTS Ltd. Each patient is given a new pair of disposable headphones when they arrive on the ward.
To use the Hospicom unit, you will need a pre-paid card which you can buy from vending machines around the hospital .
The unit offers:
- Free radio
- Access to the internet – this is only on the entertainment unit. You will not be able to use this with a laptop computer. You can view the hospital website, www.kch.nhs.uk, for free.
- Television – some hospital channels and programmes are free.

Ask staff on your ward if you can use Wi-Fi at your bedside with your mobile phone, tablet or laptop. Plug sockets might be restricted to hospital equipment only.
