ABOUT HOSPITAL RADIO IPSWICH
We provide a radio service to the patients of The Ipswich Hospital, via the Hospedia System (Channel 1). It’s absolutely free to listen to us, all you need to do is register your details with Hospedia, by lifting the handset and pressing the green operator key.
We have been providing this service for nearly 50 years. We are run entirely by volunteers and rely on donations and fund raising to provide the money we need to keep going. If you are interested in joining us we are always looking for people who are willing to commit to helping with ward visiting, fund raising and assisting with our popular roadshow / outside broadcasts. In addition to doing the above there may also be the opportunity to present your own programme. Please contact us if you are interested.
