Description

We are Bath Hospital Radio, and we have been broadcasting 24/7 to hospitals in Bath for nearly 55 years. We are proud of the work that we do in providing entertainment, comfort and information to patients at the hospitals. Our committed volunteers chat with patients on ward visits and play them the music that they want to hear. We collaborate with the patient experience team at the hospital to help provide resources and services to make the patient and carer experience more comfortable, and we provide a means for the hospital communications department to disseminate hospital and health-related news.
We have a fantastic team of volunteers, young and old, disabled, employed, retired, all of whom are highly committed to the ethos and values of our station and who provide excellent quality broadcasting. Between us we bring enthusiasm and broad and deep experience to the radio. We have an excellent software system to support our live and recorded shows and an ever-expanding music library.
We provide musical entertainment and we also have collaborations with A Word in Your Ear – a local writers forum for the performance and recording of original fiction and Kilter Theatre – a collaborative, community focused local theatre group, both of whom we have worked with to develop material for broadcast. We collaborate with Bath Rugby to broadcast live commentary on selected matches on our station. We are all proud to be part of Bath Hospital Radio, and we know that we can do so much more to develop connectedness within our community if we can update and upgrade our equipment. We are accessible inside the hospital via Hospedia, and outside by live streaming on our website and we are also available via the TuneIn app. However, our equipment is outdated, under-powered, somewhat unreliable and in general not sufficient for consistent transmission. If we can update and develop our equipment we will be able to extend our broadcasting reach and provide a reliable, improved and encompassing service from which the hospitals in Bath can continue to benefit.
