Welcome to Whipps Cross Hospital Radio

Established in 1969 the station has become the leading hospital radio station in the area, winning many programming awards from the Hospital Broadcasting Association.

We are a registered charity with around 45 volunteers who take on many different roles from visiting and chatting with patients to presenting programmes and technical support; everyone can have a part to play.

We provide music, requests, patient information, hourly news as well as local news, sport and entertainment – round-the-clock, seven days a week.

Broadcasting to the Whipps Cross community of patients, ex-patients, out-patients and staff as well as friends and relatives, our programmes are available around the hospital and onine via the ‘listen live’ button at the top of this page.

You can find more details using the buttons above.



Whipps Cross Hospital Radio is looking for ward visitors.


We need ward visitors to join our evening request teams, to meet and chat with patients, collect requests and help with live shows. 

This would probably suit more mature people with a couple of hours to spare once a week. It’s a lot of fun and patients really enjoy chatting and hearing their favourite music.


So if you enjoy meeting people and could help a great voluntary group, we would love to hear from you.
