Hospital radio service returns to Southport

Hospital radio has returned to Southport after an absence of more than two years.

Radio Heartbeat is offering a service to Southport via the internet thanks to support from the Mayor of West Lancashire’s charity and a gift of technical equipment from cloud technologies provider Novosco.

Station manager Bill Jarvis said: “We’re thrilled to be taking our service to Southport after 36 years broadcasting only to Ormskirk hospital patients.

“The system uses a Barix streaming system and patients at Southport hear broadcasts from Ormskirk nine miles away a mere five seconds after they’re transmitted from our studio.

“I am particularly grateful to the mayor’s charity, Novosco and the technical support we have received from the Trust IT team.”

Radio Heartbeat is run by a team of volunteers and broadcasts 24 hours a week. Patients can listen for free on the entertainment centre at their bedside.
