Liverpool Hospital Broadcasting Service
The Liverpool Hospital Broadcasting Service (reg. charity Eng&Wales 508557) started life as Radio Newsham in 1975.
During the early 1980’s Radio Newsham was invited to start a new station at Broadgreen Hospital, and so Radio Broadgreen launched on 19th October 1983.
Run entirely by volunteers (with no paid staff whatsoever) and funded by donations, Radio Broadgreen is now the only hospital radio service based in Liverpool providing an entertainment and information service for hospital patients, staff and the public alike.
Radio Broadgreen is broadcast to Liverpool Heart & Chest NHS Trust and Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust wards on the Broadgreen site via a hardwired system.
Hospital radio has changed from those early days at Newsham General Hospital -
So whether you want to hear music, comedy and drama or Everton and Liverpool live
LHBS, Radio Broadgreen, Radio Broadgreen 2 and RBG Sport is staffed entirely by volunteers
giving up their time for free. Each service we provide costs about £2000 per year
to operate. Please consider making a donation -
