What Is Hospital Radio?

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.
