Radio Glamorgan explands to serve three hospitals
Hospital service Radio Glamorgan is now broadcasting to two additional hospitals following a recent expansion.
The station will cover University Hospital of Wales plus the nearby St David’s Hospital along with the Cardiff Royal Infirmary, where it was based when it launched in 1974.
Angela Hughes, Assistant Director of Patient Experience, said: “Radio Glamorgan has been really important to people at University Hospital of Wales, providing entertainment and comfort to staff and patients in our care.
We are delighted that Radio Glamorgan will now cover St David’s Hospital and Cardiff Royal Infirmary too. On behalf of the Health Board, I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to the team of volunteers who do an incredible job at the station.”
Chairman of Radio Glamorgan, Jamie Pritchard said: “Over the last few years, we’ve been looking at hospitals across the area that aren’t already served by a radio station, so it made perfect sense to expand our award-winning service to the two closest sites.
“Listeners will be able enjoy the great range of programmes we have to offer and make requests through our easy-to-use website and app too. We’re continuing our close working relationship with the Cardiff and Vale Health Board Patient Experience Team too, who are doing an amazing job helping us spread the word across all the areas we serve as well.”
