About Us

What We Do

The aim of Chippenham Hospital Radio is to provide a quality radio service which entertains and informs patients by enhancing their stay in hospital through the provision of request-based programmes and local information.

Our output is distributed around the hospital via speakers in key locations like waiting rooms and the restaurant and can also be heard on-line via our website, on mobile devices by downloading the TuneIn radio app from the Apple store or Google Play or if you own a smart speaker, just ask it to play Chippenham Hospital Radio.

The radio station went on-air on 9th June 1984 and became a registered charity in 1985. Everyone involved is a volunteer.

Members receive a comprehensive training programme before broadcasting, contributing to the high quality of the service.

Chippenham Hospital Radio output is primarily based on Adult-oriented pop music (classics & current) and talk. 

The service is widely recognised by healthcare professionals to contribute to the care package provided by hospitals, providing a comfort to those who are in hospital.

The charity is a member of the Hospital Broadcasting Association.
