The HBA Annual Conference and Awards

The Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) is the umbrella organisation
and national charity that supports and promotes hospital broadcasting in the UK.

Hospital Radio Chelmsford is one of over 200 individual broadcasting stations, representing thousands

of volunteers throughout the UK. Patients in many UK hospitals benefit from programmes designed to make life better for people in hospital and aid their recovery. The HBA provides support, training and guidance to empower volunteers to provide the best service they can. Our own Graham Medhurst is currently the Vice-Chairman of the HBA.

The HBA and member stations are proud of the support from Alan Dedicoat, the voice of BBC Radio 2 and the National Lottery, as patron of the HBA. Previous patrons have included the late great Sir Terry Wogan.

Every March, the HBA hosts The National Hospital Radio Conference and Awards. This weekend event showcases the stations and presenters who spend their free time perfecting their kind of broadcasting as well as celebrating the stand out people and achievements of a niche charitable industry.
