Radio Warneford is the award-winning hospital radio service for patients, staff and visitors at South Warwickshire Foundation Trust hospitals. The station broadcasts to Warwick Hospital, Stratford Hospital, the Ellen Badger Hospital in Shipston-on-Stour and the Leamington Spa Rehabilitation Centre via the free NHS Wifi service allowing both patients and visitors to tune in on their phones or tablets and hear our shows wherever they are. We have also installed a number of internet radio sets at Warwick Hospital to allow those without a device to hear our programmes.
Radio Warneford is on-air 24 hours a day, every day, with live programmes from our teams on most weekday evenings and on Sunday mornings, complimented by a mix of the best shows from our extensive programme library. The station is run entirely by volunteers and we have opportunities for enthusiastic volunteers on some of our other evening and weekend teams too so do get in touch. We are also looking for people who have some free time during the day to become part of our Ward Visiting team who take time to chat with patients on the wards and collect requests for our programme later in the day. Those who have been part of our Ward Visiting team in the past have found it to be a rewarding experience. Joining Radio Warneford couldn't be easier as you don't need any particular qualifications or experience. If you enjoy being part of a team, like meeting and chatting with new people, listen to a range of music, have loads of enthusiasm and a keen sense of fun, we want you now!
You'll need to be able to attend our studios at Warwick Hospital on a regular basis - the exact days and hours will depend on the team that you join. We provide a complete training programme for all of our volunteers, whatever their ability or experience. Sorry, we cannot take anyone under the age of 16 but on the other hand, there is definitely no upper age limit! If you would like to find out more about Radio Warneford, or the work that our volunteers do, you can visit our website. You will also be able to download a copy of our application form. You can telephone us at any time to book a taster evening where you can see what goes on and meet some of our members before deciding whether you want to take it further. You can also request a membership pack by phone to be sent to you through the post or just find out more about what we do.
