Patient Finder is a quick and easy way to provide family and friends with information about a patients location during their hospital stay. It is designed mainly to assist friends and relatives of patients undergoing surgery.

How is Patient Finder accessed?

There are two ways for visitors to access Patient Finder:

  • In most cases prior to the hospital admission an SMS is sent to the registered mobile number with a unique link to the Patient finder app. The patient simply forwards this SMS to all desired family and friends. When the link in the SMS is clicked the Patient Finder app will open on any device and display all key location details
  • The hospital reception team will supply each patient with a Patient finder card that includes their admission number as well as a web address and QR Code® that can be used to gain access to the app. The patient can give this card or pass on the admission number and web address to all family and friends to track the patient throughout their hospital stay

Further information can be found via Patient Finder.
