Hospital Radio Awards 2017 – the winners

This year’s winners of the Hospital Radio Awards have been announced at a ceremony in Bolton.

The awards are open to any HBA member station and are divided into different categories, each one recognising a specific area of excellence; some are awarded to individuals, others to stations.

Most of the categories recognise gold, silver, and bronze winners; however, some prizes are awarded to only one individual with no runner-up places.
