The future of care starts with you

There are approximately 229 NHS Trusts in the UK, providing 141,000 NHS beds and reaching over 13 million patients annually. 

We aim to engage and entertain patients to provide a more pleasant hospital experience. How? By improving well-being and increasing recovery time with the implementation of free to use WiFi and engagement solutions in UK hospitals.

Working with Trusts we are able to offer patient WiFi that is available through a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution and as an option to upgrade, and make the most of, existing infrastructure within wards, including outdated Hospedia bedside units.

Dementia patients

SPARK® Media hosts several supportive links to empower patients to take control of their healthcare. These include access to dementia support services, such as the BBC Reminiscence Archive and BBC Music Memories, to help patients reconnect with their most precious memories.

Trusts using SPARK® Media BSU also benefit from a simplistic user interface on the bedside unit home screen. Designed to show pertinent information on the device homepage such as the date, hospital name, ward location and an analogue clock, to reassure patients.

Length of stay in hospitals rose to 8.3 days in 2022

The length of an average patient stay in UK hospitals increased from 7.3 days in 2019 to 8.3 days in 2022.

Many patients are only admitted to wards with what they’ve got on them, which usually includes a smartphone. With this in mind, hospital WiFi must be accessible to every patient to reduce the chance of feeling isolated throughout their stay — while also empowering patients to feel in control of their healthcare experience. 

But there’s so much more to offer over WiFi…

Delayed discharges cost the NHS up to £1.7 billion in 2022/23
