"Internet access should be decided on an individual basis"

As a patient in low secure men's service, it is increasingly frustrating that we have no means of accessing the internet for basic research or basic shopping.
I understand that some patients may have identified risks in this area but these should be on an individual basis rather than the whole ward.
Currently we have to ask staff to research items and prices and they are often too busy to take up our request.
Before moving to low secure we were able to access the internet with appropriate supervision and permission through the MDT.
It would be good to have an identified computer area where patients can book sessions.
