We have posts available for On Air Presenter, Programme Helpers, Back Room Staff, and Ward Visitors, and many more, come and join our happy crew. Please don’t let the word training put you off , its fun trust me.

New members join for a variety of different reasons, whether it’s presenting or producing programmes, the technical side of broadcasting, fundraising, ward visiting or one of the many other important aspects of running the station. But above all they join us to use their spare time to do something interesting, worthwhile and to benefit those people unfortunate enough to have to spend some time in hospital.

Any new member who joins us will be given a comprehensive six-month training programme to learn the skills of presenting and producing programmes. They will be involved in the stations fundraising, visiting wards for requests around the hospital, helping with outside broadcasts and many many more activities. The training may sound daunting but it provides excellent practical experience to a high standard on professional broadcasting studio equipment that has recently all been upgraded.

We are proud that a number of our previous and current members have gone on to careers within local and national radio and television.
