Broadcasting to patients at St. Mary’s and beyond
Broadcasting at our hospital is 7 days a week from 9.30am until 2am the following morning. Sunshine Radio provides a broad mix of programme content tailored to the needs of patients at the hospital.
The station is a Registered Charity (No. 263151) and a member of the national Hospital Broadcasting Association.
At present, patients can hear our programmes free of charge via channel 1 on the Hospedia bedside terminals at St. Mary’s. We are also available live online, via a link on our website, Tunein Radio, and Amazon Alexa. The Apps are available from the app store for Windows PC/Laptop, Apple, Android devices or Amazon smart speakers.
We have various roles for volunteers including collecting requests, helping patients use the bedside terminals, administration, programming, presenting, and engineering.
Listen to our live internet stream (from 9.30 to 2am the following morning).
