Patients waiting for prescriptions at Nuneaton Hospital will now have the freedom to relax and wait in the cafeteria or go for some fresh air instead of having to wait in the confines of the pharmacy all thanks to the new QuietCall patient paging system.
“We have handed over to the Pharmacy Department a QuietCall paging system which will be used by patients waiting for the dispensing of prescriptions,” said Pauline Millerchip of the charity, which donates thousands of pounds worth of equipment every year.
“They can then be paged when their prescriptions are ready for collection and avoids them waiting at the pharmacy.
“It will enable them to go to the Tea Bar or restaurant for refreshments. The cost of the equipment is £2,085. The department confirms this will be of benefit to them as well as the patients”.
Due to the success of the new QuietCall patient call system it is being expanded in to other departments within Nuneaton Hospital.
