Free patient and visitor WiFi

As part of the ongoing consolidation of our wireless networks (WiFi) and the expansion of our wireless networks to Calvary, the ACT Public Health Internet network that was provided for patients and visitors to access the internet has been renamed to HEALTHfree . The only change to this network at ACT Health facilities is the change in name, all other elements remain unchanged.
