Welcome to Northumberland Hospital Radio - NHR
Northumberland Hospital Radio is a regionally-based hospital broadcasting service covering the county of Northumberland and North Tyneside District. Our Radio Station - NHR - currently provides a 24-hour service to Blyth Community Hospital, Hexham General Hospital, North Tyneside General Hospital and Wansbeck General Hospital - Hospitals within the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust - one of the largest NHS Trusts in the UK.
The service is run entirely by voluntary staff (there are no paid employees of the Charity) who either work elsewhere or are retired. All our volunteers bring a mix of skills and experience for the benefit of the organisation. NHR is a UK registered charity.
NHR broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, using a computer-based playout system to provide patients and staff with a quality blend of easy listening music, mixed with information and quality speech content.
Hear us at Hexham, North Tyneside and Wansbeck General Hospitals on Hospedia radio channel 1, at Blyth Community Hospital on bedside radio channel 1
Listening to NHR via Hospedia (formerly Patientline) is completely free of charge. You do not need to purchase a viewing card.
If you are a patient at Hexham, North Tyneside or Wansbeck, you will normally be registered on the Hospedia system for meal ordering, on admission to the ward. You can then listen to NHR - as well as a selection of other radio channels - all day free of charge.
At Blyth Community Hospital a brand new nurse call system has been installed which offers approximately 10 radio channels - including NHR - in digital stereo quality. You may need to ask a member of staff for the loan of a walkman-style headset, which should always be left for the use and benefit of the next patient.
NHR - 100% voluntary - no salaries - serving the NHS for 39 years
New website coming in 2014.
