Volunteering with Radio Frimley Park

Would you like to get involved with the running of a 24-hours-a-day radio service, which revolves around enhancing the patient experience at Frimley Park, Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals?

We are now able to restart our recruitment efforts, and are on the lookout for volunteers to help us do this. The rĂ´le a lot of people think of when thinking about radio is that of the DJ or presenter, but we need all sorts of other help as well - for instance gathering requests, getting involved at our outside events, assisting with studio engineering work, publicity, or even keeping on top of the admin.

Even if you're not sure whether this might be "up your street" and just want to know more to start with, do get in touch. Drop our Membership Manager an email at membership@radiofrimleypark.co.uk and let us know what your area of interest is, and why you'd like to be involved in hospital radio.

Lots of people, particularly presenter applicants, want to join because they think hospital radio is the first step on the ladder to a glittering radio career, and it's true that a number of very well known names in the radio industry have spent some time in hospital radio at the start of their careers. However, realistically we'd have to say that there are many more for whom this is not the case, than there are success stories. We are more interested in those that feel they can do something positive for the station, rather than hoping it can do something for them.

If you might be interested in ward visiting, please note we may at the moment have to place you on a waiting list, as we are not currently able to visit the wards due to the Covid pandemic. However, please don't let that dissuade you from enquiring, because as soon as we can, ward visiting will restart!

We regret that we are unable to assist with requests for work experience placements - sorry!
