Posted on Friday, December 8, 2017 in News

Requirements – Great Ormond Street Hospital is world renowned for it’s world firsts in surgery, pioneering research and state of the art facilities. Great Ormond Street wanted to offer waiting parents & patients the ability to move away from waiting areas and relax in the hospitals excellent cafeteria or even the cafes in the surrounding streets. They needed a system which would allow parents & patients to be called back when required.

The hospital also wanted children and their parents to be able to visit the nearby park but still be contactable when required to return for their appointment. The system was to be used by multiple department across the site. The final requirement was that the system would cover all of the hospital site allowing parents and patients to be contacted no matter where they were in the hospital.


Solution – Pager Call Systems installed Quiet Call Ultra patient paging systems in to 16 departments throughout the hospital linked by a network of 12 system repeaters hosted on Great Ormond Street Hospitals Ethernet Network. With a network of 12 repeaters strategically positioned throughout the hospital any department can call back a patient no matter where they are located in the Hospital, cafe’s in surrounding streets or even if they are located in the nearby Coram’s Fields Park.
