New studios for Hospital Radio

Hospital station Radio Chelsea and Westminster has moved into brand new purpose built designer studios, whilst Roch Valley Radio officially launches in Greater Manchester.

The modern art deco style studio at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital was designed by architects Studio4Design and features an iLounge as well as fully equipped broadcast studio allowing patients and staff to see presenters on air.

It is believed to be the first time the NHS have worked so closely with such a charity to create a premier-league hospital radio installation and on such a scale.

Meanwhile in the north west, the official launch of Roch Valley Radio took place on June 12th, with the mayor of Rochdale. The station serves the Rochdale Infirmary and the Fairfield General in Bury. The station is a result of the previously two seperate charities working together.

Bob Chadwick, station manager, told "We are absolutely delighted to be officially launching the station at such a significant time for the NHS. We’ve got a great bunch of volunteers who will be giving everything they’ve got to keep patients entertained."
