Welcome to Hospital Radio Hillingdon

We have received money from the Big Lottery Fund
We are a registered Charity no. 264132 run entirely by volunteers. We serve the patients of Hillingdon Hospital, which in case you were wondering is close to Heathrow Airport, London, England. We are a Radio Station in a Hospital. Our aim is to brighten up the stay of the patients, by broadcasting music requests and dedications, national and local news and the best selection of music, 24 hours a day. We play something for everyone of all ages. Our service is broadcast FREE of charge on the Hospedia Bedside Entertainment System on Radio channel 45, and online at radiohillingdon.com so relatives of the patients can listen as well, from the comfort of their favourite Living room armchair.

Radio Hillingdon is not funded by the NHS and all of our day to day running costs are met with funds raised by our volunteers. If you would like to help us please make sure you visit our Fund-raising page or use our web shop further down this page.

Thank you for visiting us and we hope you enjoy exploring our website.

Radio Hillingdon Celebrates 45 years of Broadcasting this Christmas (2015)

45 Years
As part of its celebrations the station is searching for ex-volunteers and ex-patients who worked at or listened to the station during its 45 years.

We would like them to take part in a series of recordings telling the stations listeners about their memories of Radio Hillingdon.

To contact us use the CONTACT US form.

Hospital Radio Hillingdon is staffed entirely by volunteers. It broadcasts free 24 hours a day to the hospital wards on Hospedia Radio channel 45 and to Care Homes and Day Centres around the London Borough of Hillingdon via the internet at www.radiohillingdon.com or our smartphone app.

Chairman, Steve Hickman said, "He is very proud of his radio station and the volunteers who give up their time each week to try and brighten up the stay of the patients". "To have survived for 45 years is a remarkable achievement, especially today when there are so many Charities asking for support".


Mayor of London, Boris Johnson visits Radio Hillingdon

Boris Johnson
In January 2015 the Mayor of London, Mr Boris Johnson visited Hillingdon Hospital to see the brand new Acute Medical Unit and improved Accident and Emergency Department. During his visit he requested to pay a visit to Radio Hillingdon.

Mr Johnson is no stranger to the media world, as he spent much of his career as a Reporter, and later as an Editor for various newspapers and magazines including The Times and the Daily Telegraph.

Steve Hickman, our Chairman, showed the Mayor around the studio complex, and told Boris about the service the volunteers provide to the patients of the Hospital. He also showed the Mayor the brand new studio which had just been built by volunteers, and paid for by Council and National Lottery funding.

Boris was extremely impressed by the studios and the service provided. He even joked that the studios could rival the studios owned by the BBC. Whilst in the studio he recorded a "Get well soon message" to be played to the patients.
