Hospitals 'should allow mobiles'

BBC NEWS - Hospitals 'should allow mobiles'

Doctors say they should be allowed to use mobile phones in hospitals.
The British Medical Association's annual conference in Llandudno has heard there is little evidence to support the current ban in many trusts.

Doctors said they would be able to look after patients more effectively if they could use phones rather than having to rely on pagers.

However, the Department of Health said there was some evidence that phones can interfere with vital medical equipment.
