Courtney Thorne have been specialising solely in wireless nurse call technology since 1990 and have grown to establish ourselves as the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer in the sector.


We now count NHS Trusts and private hospitals amongst our customers, along with local authority and privately owned care homes, ranging from small independents to multi-national care home groups.

Our NHS Account Managers have extensive experience of working with senior NHS stakeholders including Estates and Clinical teams, to implement a nurse call solution that meets the needs of their organisation. This can range from a single system specification for use across an entire NHS trust, through to a ‘break out’ system that can quickly and effectively meet a short term need.

Courtney Thorne’s innovative Altra Range is designed specifically for the Hospital sector.

Why is the Altra Range the right choice for your hospital?

  • Compliance – The Altra Range has been specifically designed to be fully compliant with the Department of health HTM08-03 bedhead services guidelines.
  • Infection prevention – The hand held Pear Push Lead meets IP67 standards, meaning it’s protected against dust and is water resistant – ensuring a robust unit that assists you in maintaining infection control standards throughout the hospital.
  • Information – Easy to view ‘real time’ reports are accessible at the click of a button, showing how many calls occur, how quickly they are responded to and which nurse responded

Why Wireless?

  • Simplicity – Our installation process is simple and clean with no wiring required, allowing us to work around an operational ward without disruption to staff and patients.
  • Flexibility – The modular nature of the system means it can be added to and reconfigured with ease, providing hospitals with a system that can grow and adapt to an ever changing hospital environment.
  • Value – This competitively priced system can bring you savings of up to 40% against a hard wired alternative.

Our mission is “to design, develop and deliver technology that protects and improves the lives of people who require care”.
