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.
Stephen Hickman, Chairman - Hospital Radio Hillingdon
For a third year running Radio Hillingdon has scooped an Award. We received a 2022 SPECIAL Award at the National Hospital Broadcasting Awards called 'Recognising Innovation Across Hospital Radio'. This is designed to recognise those behind the scenes, this award celebrates pushing the boundaries and using innovative, novel or pioneering ideas.
During the 2020 lockdown David Brown one of our Founder Members and a retired IT Manager started looking at an idea to make an adapter that could be attached to a TV to show NHS and station information slides and play Radio Hillingdon live broadcasts from the TV speakers. He proved the idea worked and has so far built seven units. Four are located in various Hillingdon Hospital outpatient departments, one is running in the Choices Restaurant and two are in a local care home, with more planned.

Radio Hillingdon scooped up the 2021 Silver Award for the 'Best Specialist Music Programme' at the National Hospital Broadcasting Awards. The award-winning programme is called Rewind to the 1970's. It is presented by volunteer Jeff Brown, who has volunteered for the station for over 30 years.
The Judges said... "This was a really well put together show, focusing on the glam rock era - with great knowledge and excellent use of audio clips as well. One said it was an entry that left me wanting more - very professional and a really good listen." You can listen to Jeffs Show on Friday evening at 9 pm and Saturday evening at 6 pm.
