Northwick Park Hospital, near Harrow, is the first to try the new Patientline compact TV and phone system designed by Cambridge Product Design. The wall-mounted unit offers every patient a choice of 17 TV and ten radio channels and a personal answerphone service. Installed at no cost to the NHS, the unit is paid for by patients via a smart card. CPD’s contribution includes the pivot arm, the control interface and the wall box. Northwick Park Hospital is currently having 650 units fitted, and eight more hospitals have signed up for the new system. Allen Boothroyd, CPD’s managing director, says that the system has enormous potential, both in the UK and internationally.
