Frequently Asked Questions

No. We broadcast exclusively to the patients in the hospital via dedicated lines to each bedside.

All over the UK, patients can hear music, news and information from their local hospital radio service.

  • Hospital radio aims to provide comfort and entertainment to patients in hospital with a special mix of music and chat. The service also keeps patients in touch with their family and friends with music requests and local news items.
  • All hospital stations are run entirely by volunteers. We have no paid staff and get no regular income from the NHS or other Government sources.
  • The biggest reward for a hospital broadcasting volunteer is a letter from a patient who says thank you for keeping them company at a difficult time.
