Radio Harrow raises awareness of Tuberculosis

Radio Harrow has hosted a special broadcast in aid of World Tuberculosis (TB) Day to help raise awareness of the disease.

During the eight hour show on March 24th, the hospital radio station featured a variety of guests including a number of former patients speaking about their experience with TB. The show also featured interviews with staff at Northwick Park Hospital’s Infectious Diseases Department.

Over the six weeks prior, Radio Harrow ran special public service announcements throughout their programming, describing symptoms of TB and the types of services available in the area. The public service announcements were broadcast in several different languages including Gujarati and German.

Several volunteers presented and contributed to the special show, Programming Manager, Gary Walker steered the group alongside Daniel Cash and William Njobvu. They were joined by Charles Biggie, Vic Moont and John Sanger who helped to conduct interviews throughout the day.

Programming Manager, Gary Walker described the broadcast as a “great success”. Gary told RadioToday: “We received a good deal of interest from listeners online and on social media, so we hope to have helped to make people more aware of the Tuberculosis services in Harrow”.
