IMGBIN responsive web design smartphone tablet computer png CS1cxvJpThe stringent rules about visiting patients at the North Middlesex Hospital, especially those with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and patients awaiting test results for COVID-19, are particularly upsetting for families, so the hospital is appealing people with spare tablet computers or smartphones to donate them in order to facilitate 'virtual visits'.

We recognise this is a difficult situation, and we are keen to support families at this challenging time. We have redeployed our PALS team to support liaison with families during this period, and we are looking to acquire additional tablets and smart phones to support ‘virtual visiting’. If you have a spare gadget you could donate for this purpose, please contact Patricia Mecinska, head of patient experience.
