NHS: Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast

Volume 684: debated on Thursday 20 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Rooker on 4 July (WA 35) concerning the Royal Victoria Hospital, what is the expected percentage of joint units of telephone and entertainment for patients’ bedsides which should be working at any one time.[HL6892]

As I stated in my reply of 4 July, the equipment is currently provided by Patientline UK Ltd, which is responsible for its maintenance. There is no clause in the contract which specifies what percentage of units should be working at any one time.
