The wards in Colchester General have free WiFi. It would be easy to push a USB WiFi into one of those trusty XP machines they have all over the place. The IT department are usually out to lunch at Colchester and Clacton anyway. Try getting blood results at Clacton when they have been put on the computer in Ipswich. Better to wait for the postman or get someone in Ipswich to read the screen out to you over the phone.
