Hospital Radio at UHNM

​​​​Hospital Radio Stafford (HRS) is Staffordshire's very own free hospital radio station. It began broadcasting in January 1972 and has grown both in broadcasting capacity and popularity over the last 47 years.

Hospital Radio Stafford broadcasts to Royal Stoke University Hospital, County Hospital, Cannock Chase hospital and to Katharine House Hospice.

Patients and visitors may listen to HRS 24 hours a day, all year round. At Cannock Chase and County hospitals, patients may listen from their bedside entertainment system; at Katharine House visitors and residents may listen in the main lounge and at Royal Stoke patients and visitors may tune into HRS on any web enabled device such as a smart phone, tablet or laptop computer via the Hospital's WiFi free of charge for as long as they like.

HRS relies on fundraising and generous donations to enable the service to continue. More than 35 volunteers from all walks of life devote free time to broadcast, make programmes and visit patients to collect music requests.
