Since November 1st Harrogate District Hospital switched off Hospedia, the main source of entertainment within the hospital.
Harrogate District Hospital now has public Wi-Fi and you can listen to us online or by downloading our free APP to your smartphone or tablet, it is so easy.
The good news is Harrogate Hospital Radio have been granted a licence by Ofcom to allow us to broadcast on the medium waive frequency and this should be in place by early 2019.
Early 2019, Harrogate Hospital Radio will be providing hand held radios with headphones to patients so they can listen in the comfort of their beds while in hospital.
We have already begun installing radios in public areas of the hospital to allow day patients, staff and visitors to listen to Harrogate Hospital Radio.

Christmas (or any other time) in hospital is never a good place to be but our aim is to make your stay in hospital just that little bit better.
