About Us
Past Events


Keep calm and volunteer now

Can you give your time to help?

If you'd like to help people who are in hospital to relax by listening to music, you could be part of the hospital radio service

We need more volunteers to sign up to our small team of people who give up their spare time to keep the station runningsign up clipart

Whether a ward visitor or ward visitor who also presents a programme, every individual is an important part of our organisation

Although some members have gone on to be successful professional radio presenters, the station is not for "wannabe DJs".  Radio Halton expects a good level of commitment from new volunteers, who must be focussed on the patients

Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust requires volunteers wishing to join Radio Halton to go through the same recruitment process as applicants for jobs in the hospital.  You will need to

  • be aged 17 or over

  • provide two referees not related to you; one must be your employer or tutor

  • complete an Workplace Health and Wellbeing questionnaire regarding past infectious diseases and immunity and

  • undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) check

If you can give 2 hours each week and want to apply, please email us
