When you reach your hospital bed, follow the instructions on the bedside screen to get yourself set up on the TV. It only takes a few moments and then you’re all set.
To use our services (including your free TV, Radio and calls to landlines numbers beginning 01, 02 and 03), you will need to create an account first. It’s easy, and this information secures your account and stops others from using your credit in case you move beds during your stay. We only ask for your initial, surname and date of birth to create your account. Your personal details are safe, and will not be passed on to anyone.
If you have problems getting started, just pick up your bedside phone to speak to our Customer Care Team. This is always a FREE call from the bedside, and our Advisors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help.
If you want to use a chargeable service, like TV or films, you’ll need to put some credit into your ‘Account’ on your bedside TV & Phone.
You can either add credit by purchasing a Paycard with cash at one of our many vending machines located either in or near to your ward; or just pick up the phone and chat with our Customer Care Team. To add credit yourself using a debit or credit card just follow the on-screen instructions.
If you’re a relative or friend, you can purchase credit for a patient by dialing 0345 414 1234. Alternatively, friends and family can download the Hospedia App to any mobile device and either look after your account for you, or simply upload credit for you to enjoy.
If you are not planning on taking any means of payment with you to hospital, please call our customer care team on 0345 414 1234 before your stay, and they can create your account and add credit for you to use when you are in hospital.
