"Clinical care excellent however no bedside..."

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I cannot commend the staff that dealt with me highly enough,

They were kind and listened to me.

Unfortunately I and many others did not have a bedside phone or entertainment system that worked.

Last time I was there I loved listening to the hospital radio station and had a couple of requests played.

Is the system being upgraded?
