The age of BYOD is not just reserved for the workplace. People like to stay in touch wherever they are, even when, or especially when, they are unwell.

This became apparent when SWComms installed a wireless data network for Dorothy House Hospice Care.

Simon Dunstan, senior account manager, said: “We have seen a very big growth in hospices proving WiFi. Smartphones, iPads, Android tablets...patients are now brining these into the hospice and are using them to contact their relatives.

“They have a video device such as Skype or FaceTime on the device they want to use because that’s how they communicate with their friends and loved ones.”

Dorothy House Hospice Care invested in a wireless network to be able to offer this service to their patients and their visitors.

It also uses wireless connectivity to enable nursing staff to access electronic notes via tablet devices while at a patient’s bedside.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
