Torbay Hospital Radio

Torbay Hospital Radio provides a unique mixture of programmes to patients in Torbay Hospital, many of them including requests. The service cannot be heard on normal radios, as it’s fed direct to the patient’s bedside.

If you have recently been in hospital and heard our programmes, you are welcome to send us your comments. Torbay Hospital Radio can be heard 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, via our friendly computer, nicknamed Cedric!

As a voluntary organisation, we are always looking for new members to help us maintain and improve our service. So if your visit to our website has inspired you to get involved with hospital radio, please contact us using one of the methods below.

A Word From Our Chairman

THR started in 1978 and we became a registered charity in 1995. We are made up solely of volunteers and we provide a free service of music, requests and entertainment for the patients and staff within Torbay Hospital to try and help their time in hospital pass a little more easily.

We raise funds to keep our station going by providing Public Address and Commentaries, often broadcasting out of our bright yellow THR caravan at many of our local traditional outdoor events and fetes such as Paignton Carnival Week, Marldon Apple Pie Fair, Kingsteignton Ram Roast, The Pedal Car Grand Prix and Agatha Christie Week.
