Issue No
Issue 4

Target Audience

All clinical staff


It is accepted that admission to in-patient services can be a difficult time for service users, and in particular, when patients are without the support of relatives and friends. CWP respects the need for service users to maintain contact with people outside the ward environment. The purpose of this policy is to set out some key principles about the use of personal mobile phones and personal mobile phones with photographic capability in the inpatient areas.
