Christmas 2020

Family and friends restricted by the Coronavirus in not being able to visit a loved one at Ipswich Hospital are being urged to use “Bedside Friend” Hospital Radio Ipswich during the Christmas and New Year.

Production Manager Tim Ward says that the round the clock service on HRI includes a request programme each night, 8-10pm, with special messages of love and support with music tailored to the individual. The station will once again be “live EVERY day” throughout the holiday period including eight hours of live broadcasting from the HRI team on Christmas Day including special guest Nick Hulme, the CEO of the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT)

Affectionately known as “HRI”, the station has continued live broadcasting throughout the pandemic with its dedicated team of volunteer broadcasters, linking home to hospital.
