Free Wifi now available at Musgrove Park Hospital - 20 July 2018

From Wednesday 18 July for the first time patients will be able to benefit from free Wifi throughout the hospital, except in critical care areas.

To access the free Wifi at Musgrove, log onto the 'NHS Wi-Fi' network.

If you don't have access to a tablet or smartphone while you are at hospital let a member of staff know.

Our staff will also undertake visual checks of device chargers to ensure that there are no live parts and that the charger plugs show no signs of deterioration.

We would ask that patients avoid charging devices overnight to reduce fire risk

  • We recommend that mobile phones should be placed on 'airplane mode' if they are within one metre of medical devices
  • Our staff will offer patients who don’t have a mobile phone access to the ward cordless telephone if they need to make a call
  • We will continue to manage our day room facilities to enable patients to comfortably sit and enjoy television
  • For the comfort of others patients we'd ask that people use headphones when watching their own device.
