Established in 1972, the Bournemouth and East Dorset Hospital Broadcasting Association was formed from a coalition of Radio Boscombe and Radio Poole.
Hospital Radio Bedside is proud to be serving listeners and patients in our local hospitals more than 50 years later.
Due to unprecedented demand in recent months, we have temporarily suspended applications from new potential volunteers.
Please bear with us as we take the time needed to properly welcome our latest applicants.
Thank you for your interest in joining Hospital Radio Bedside; please do check back here in the new year, when we hope to have opened our application process again.
We raise funds in many different ways and means: we welcome donations at our many local events, we regularly organise raffles, and we host fundraising events such as our annual Quiz Night, hosted by Alan Dedicoat.
At the core of all of this activity, we run a regular-donation fundraising scheme. It's called Friends of HRB, and we would love you to join.
Regular donations make a huge difference to our charity, allowing us to continually improve the service we offer to patients in our local hospitals, as well as their friends and relatives in the local community.
Subscribers can choose the amount that suits them: £4 per month, £5 per month, or £10 per month.
Just select your preferred option to join today.
If you wish to make a one-donation, cheques are payable to Hospital Radio Bedside or you may contact our treasurer for bank details.
