Hospital Radio Hillingdon is staffed entirely by volunteers. It broadcasts free 24 hours a day to the hospital wards on Hospedia Radio channel 45 and to Care Homes and Day Centres around the London Borough of Hillingdon via the internet at www.radiohillingdon.com or our smartphone app.
Chairman, Steve Hickman said, "He is very proud of his radio station and the volunteers who give up their time each week to try and brighten up the stay of the patients". "To have survived for 45 years is a remarkable achievement, especially today when there are so many Charities asking for support".
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson visits Radio Hillingdon
Mr Johnson is no stranger to the media world, as he spent much of his career as a Reporter, and later as an Editor for various newspapers and magazines including The Times and the Daily Telegraph.
Steve Hickman, our Chairman, showed the Mayor around the studio complex, and told Boris about the service the volunteers provide to the patients of the Hospital. He also showed the Mayor the brand new studio which had just been built by volunteers, and paid for by Council and National Lottery funding.
Boris was extremely impressed by the studios and the service provided. He even joked that the studios could rival the studios owned by the BBC. Whilst in the studio he recorded a "Get well soon message" to be played to the patients.
