Listening figures from Hospedia, who provide the bedside consoles, show that the station is the favourite choice at Whipps Cross and is one of the favourite hospital stations in the UK.
Station Chairman, Mike Jones, commented that it was an enormous achievement and reflected the efforts of the volunteers to focus the programmes on patients and provide a service tailored to their needs. “To achieve the numbers when the stations showing higher figures have far more bedside units must mean that, unit for unit, we are probably the most listened to station in any hospital.”
The level of listening underwrites the importance of a bespoke entertainment and information service within Whipps Cross. The figures do not include those listening on speakers around the hospital or online.
