These telephones rarely accept calls abroad, and occasionally, the service is limited They are not owned by the hospital so should you experience any difficulties; please report these to a member of the nursing staff who will inform the company the next working day
Mobile phones are permitted if used with sensitivity to the other patients on the ward. There is no hospital WFI access so you would need to arrange your own.
It would be most appreciated if one person telephones the ward and relays the information to the rest of the family to enable the nurses to devote as much time as possible to caring for the patients.
