Welcome to Hospital Radio Colchester.
Our service is available, FREE of charge, 24 hours a day on channel 1 on your Hospedia bedside unit.
If you are unsure how to tune in please ask a member of staff.
Hospital Radio Colchester is a registered charity which is funded by charitable contributions and the various
fundraising events that we run throughout the year.
We have been in existence for almost 60 years, and broadcast our services 24/7 to hospital patients across the Colchester area. It is a completely free service, run by volunteers that aims to make a patients stay in hospital a bit more enjoyable.
If you would like to know more about the history of the station, please see the history section under the "About Us" menu above.
During the Covid-19 pandemic we continued to provide our dedicated service but like many charities we have not been able to undertake as many fundraising activities as we would usually do.
