Welcome to Hospital Radio Hillingdon

We have received money from the Big Lottery Fund
We are a registered Charity no. 264132 run entirely by volunteers. We serve the patients of Hillingdon Hospital, which in case you were wondering is close to Heathrow Airport, London, England. We are a Radio Station in a Hospital. Our aim is to brighten up the stay of the patients, by broadcasting music requests and dedications, national and local news and the best selection of music, 24 hours a day. We play something for everyone of all ages. Our service is broadcast FREE of charge on the Hospedia Bedside Entertainment System on Radio channel 45, and online at radiohillingdon.com so relatives of the patients can listen as well, from the comfort of their favourite Living room armchair.

Radio Hillingdon is not funded by the NHS and all of our day to day running costs are met with funds raised by our volunteers. If you would like to help us please make sure you visit our Fund-raising page or use our web shop further down this page.

Thank you for visiting us and we hope you enjoy exploring our website.

Ex-Mayor opens new Hospital Radio Studio’s

New Studio Opening

On Saturday 18th February 2017 Cllr Allan Kauffman visited Radio Hillingdon to officially open Radio Hillingdon’s 2 new studios, which he helped to gain funding for. During his visit he cut a ribbon across the studio door, whilst making a speech live on air. He then stayed for an hour chatting to members and patients during a special radio programme.

Cllr Kauffman was the Mayor of the London Borough of Hillingdon in 2013/14. During his term in office he visited the Hospital studios to record a get well message to the patients. He was so impressed by the station and the service it provides, that he asked Chairman Steve Hickman, if there was some way in which he could help. The Mayor then asked the Council for a grant for £20,000 which enabled Radio Hillingdon to purchase 2 new professional digital mixing desks. This was added to £10,000 from the National Lottery and a further £10,000 which the stations volunteers raised themselves making a total of £40,000. This was used to purchase 2 completely new, state of the art studios. The equipment was installed by a team of dedicated volunteers over the next year or so. The new studios will enable the stations volunteers to interchange seamlessly between programmes. But will also mean that whilst one studio is on air, the other can be used for training new volunteers or pre-recording programmes and interviews.

Chairman, Steve Hickman said,” We are extremely grateful to Cllr Kaufman and Hillingdon Council for their generous donation. The studios are amazing and our volunteers feel very proud and honored to be able to use them”.
