We aim to provide relief of sickness, poor health and old age amongst patients in Queen’s, King George & Goodmayes Hospitals, plus out reach to residential homes and similar institutions, and for patients receiving community care.
Working within our community to promote the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle, and the importance of maintaining a good personal mental and physical health. helping make our community a better, safer and healthier place to be.

You will receive all the training you need to become an integral part of the hospital radio team.
You will be introduced to the wards and shown how the bedside radios work. You will also be trained in basic infection control procedures. Should you wish to progress to become a presenter, you’ll be trained in presentation techniques and on the technical equipment in the studio. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn and practice all sorts of other skills, from fundraising to setting up outside broadcast events, and from interviewing to management and committee work
We DO NOT offer work experience placements of any kind.
Due to not having regular members of staff on-site during the daytime, our hours of operation are unsuitable for the bodies that issue work experience placements. However, you could volunteer with us more long-term to help develop your skills.
