Hospital Radio Chelmsford
Who is behind the running and broadcasting of the service
Hospital Radio Chelmsford, was established in 1964 and broadcasts to Broomfield Hospital, 24 hours a day.
Approximately 50 people are involved in the day-to-day running of the station.
Volunteers are always needed; you should contact the station directly if you are interested.
Please note you must be over 17 years to join Hospital Radio Chelmsford and unfortunately due to restrictions we are not able to offer work placements for job experience.
My love of the offshore pirates in the 1960’s and always wanting to present on the radio, led me to volunteer for HRC back in 1976. I spent many happy years presenting programmes, serving as a committee member and eventually becoming Chairman. Gathering requests from patients, chatting for a few minutes at the bedside was always a great delight and I always felt that this provided a valuable service as an extra visitor for those in hospital especially those with few friends or family members.
The programmes and ward visits offered by hospital radio are welcomed by health service staff and we feel part of the hospital recovery teams. It was a great honour to be asked to represent the station as President of the organisation which I have enjoyed for many years.
Away from the HRC studios I have worked for BBC Essex for many years, presenting the Afternoon Show for 22 years. Radio has always been my first love and I hope that your stay in hospital is made a little more comfortable by listening in to our programmes made by a team of dedicated volunteers
