On Air


50 years serving the community

Welcome to Hospital Radio Plymouth

We are staffed entirely by volunteers who create and produce both live and recorded programmes. We have the ability to broadcast from pretty much anywhere and bring you the Plymouth Argyle football matches live from Home Park direct to your hospital bedside.

In 2018 we moved from the main hospital site over to Bircham House where we had new studios supplied by Richard at Radio Studio Services and built by Doorcare south west . The Main Studio, Studio 1, is used for most live programmes equipped with the Axia IQ desk with playout being Zetta from RCS . Studio 2 is for used for training , recording and creating items for broadcast and is our backup on air studio .  You can see more in our History section.

The future looks great - we will be broadcasting live from the wards around Derriford Hospital. We will continue to make specialist programmes.  And with the fast moving world of social media, you can connect direct to our studios from your mobile device using the Trust's free NHS Wi-Fi.

If you want to be a part of this diverse and talented group of people, if you have a passion for radio, if you love meeting people and most of all enjoy bringing a smile to someone's face, why not join us?

Contact us on *800 from your bedside or 01752 784300
