Help us to make entertainment
free to patients

SPARK® is the answer to efficiency, engagement, entertainment and education to both staff and patients harmoniously. 

Our future vision is to upgrade all existing units to SPARK® Horizons, to provide better applications, superior technology and drive
more efficiency to the Trust and its patients.

By deploying this reputable and proven software onto bedside units, we can ensure that every patient and staff member has access to education, entertainment, information and engagement no matter if they have a device with them or not.

Unfortunately, existing bedside units are too outdated to support SPARK® Media, so we have built a new state-of-the-art unit – SPARK® Horizon.
