Cotswold Hospital Radio
About this volunteer-involving organisationWe began as Cheltenham Hospital Radio in 1974. We then began broadcasting as Cotswold Hospital Radio to Cheltenham General and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, St Pauls Maternity and Gloucester Maternity Hospitals in 1976.
Cotswold Hospital Radio is based in Cheltenham, and the area is rich in culture. Cheltenham has its many sporting and cultural festivals throughout the year, and Gloucester is a lovely City with plenty going on. We aim to cover local events in order that patients in hospital can enjoy them, despite being unable to attend. We also feature a request programme, called the Patients Postbag, each evening so that patients can hear their favourite piece. Whether it be Music, Poetry, Literature or even Theatre.
Cotswold Hospital Radio is a registered charity run by volunteers. We produce programmes especially for patients in Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. We broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
