Delivering Eduroam into the NHS environment

Academic staff and students can now access University services via Eduroam at a number of locations within Derriford Hospital:

            • The seminar rooms, Discovery Library and Cafe on level 5 of the Terence Lewis Building
            • Maternity
            • Anaesthesia

This is an initial rollout which is expected to grow following an initial six month trial period.

Discussions are already underway with Torbay Hospital to provide a similar service there.  The link to Derriford uses existing dedicated connectivity but the intention with Torbay is to use the link from Janet to N3.  Once proven this could be a scalable model enabling us to reach NHS locations across the region
