Hundreds Of Nhs Patients Will Be Able To Watch The Euro Final For Free From The Comfort Of Their Hospital Beds

Thanks to Health Minister Sajid Javid, patients in hospitals across the UK will be able to watch tonight’s highly awaited match for free.

Mr Javid stepped in when patients were facing paying up to PS10 for pay-per-view services from their hospital beds, putting them at risk of missing the big match.

Some patients, according to staff, would be unable to afford the fee and would miss England’s match against Italy on Sunday evening.

According to Health Minister Sajid Javid, them will be able to watch the big game for free. Nevertheless, the charge has been cancelled for the length of the final, allowing patients to watch not only the big game, but also Wimbledon.

‘I’m happy that patients will be able until cheer on the crew as they bring it home,’ Mr Javid told The Sun on Sunday. Hospedia, which administers the service, which has 56,000 bedside terminals in 130 hospitals throughout the UK, said patients will have free access from 8 a.m. today to 6 a.m. tomorrow.

Patients can interact via technology in real time with Hospedia’s bedside terminals, which contain TV channels, computerized food ordering, healthcare education and information, and a Dementia orientation screen to help patients with Dementia settle in.

Managing Director Jason Cooper announced that the fee would be waived in honor of the England team’s progress to the final.

‘I’m sure it’ll be a spectacular – yet nerve-wracking – occasion,’ he added.

‘We hope everyone who is in hospital tomorrow may get some excitement from the big game,’ said Hospedia, whose bedside terminals allow patients to connect with technology in real time. ‘England is poised to play in their traditional white home kit in today evening’s final, despite officially being the away team.’

Despite the fact that the major game is being place in London, Italy is technically the home team due to the way the draw worked out, and they have chosen to wear their customary blue uniform, leaving England to do the same.

Only once this tournament has Roberto Mancini’s side donned blue-white-blue, in a 1-0 group-stage triumph over Wales.

England, on the other hand, has only worn white-blue-white for the last two knockout matches against Ukraine and Denmark, after wearing all-white for the first four matches.

In total, England and Italy have met 27 times, with the Azzurri winning 11 times to England’s eight, and the remaining eight matches ending in draws.
