Wi-Fi and networks
We know how important staying connected is. Whether you are visiting a patient or coming to one of our sites for work purposes, you’ll find details below for how to get online.
Free Wi-Fi for staff, patients and visitors is now available across all of our hospitals and community sites. The network is called “NHS Wi-Fi” and will allow connection to the internet however streaming is restricted.
People will be able to connect to NHS Wi-Fi by using a Facebook, Twitter or Google account. The service became live on Wednesday 12 December 2018.
There will be no technical support available from the Trust but a list of frequently asked questions are below.
Please Note: We are currently experiencing problems with NHS Wi-Fi when using a combination of an Android phone and Google account with its 2-Step Verification to login. You are advised to use another Social Media platform or create a secondary Google account with no 2-Step Verification.
The Trust has signed up to Govroam, a wifi network that works across numerous public sector locations across the UK. It’s available to staff from other participating organisations.
Your device should connect automatically once you’re on site. If you experience any issues with the connection please contact your organisation’s IT service desk.
Further information is available via the Govroam website.
