Nominations out for the 2022 National Hospital Radio Awards

The National Hospital Radio Awards is back for 2022 and the shortlist has been announced by Alan Dedicoat during an online video.

The awards event, organised by the Hospital Broadcasting Association, will take place later this year as part of the annual HBA conference.

Categories this year include Best Male, Best Female, Best Programme with Multiple Presenters and the return of Special Event and Best Speech Package as individual categories.

Awards organiser Neil Ogden said: “It’s great to hear how our member stations have continued broadcasting some excellent programming during these unprecedented difficult times and that they can take the time to share what they have been doing.”

Chairman of the HBA, Grant McNaughton, added: “Hospital Broadcasting organisations across the UK have continued to deliver entertaining entertainment, news and information to healthcare users throughout this pandemic. What is truly remarkable is that our member stations have adapted to these difficult times and remained committed to serving, producing and presenting dedicated local radio for the healthcare community. Our National Hospital Radio Awards recognise the talent and dedication of hospital broadcasting volunteers, and this year’s entries showcase that remarkable talent and commitment.

During the pandemic, visiting restrictions across major healthcare settings, including care homes and hospitals, have often meant the voice on the radio at the other end of the speaker has been the only form of communication for relatives and patients to connect with each other.
