About radio

Hospital Radio Ipswich (HRI) is a unique broadcasting service dedicated to the patients at The Ipswich Hospital. The station has been serving its community for over 50 years, providing 24-hour broadcasts every day. The content is created entirely by a team of dedicated volunteers who operate out of a state-of-the-art studio​.

Listening to HRI is absolutely free for patients, who can access the service via the Hospedia System (Channel 1) after registering their details​​. The station also broadcasts online, allowing people outside the hospital to tune in live and listen to its eclectic range of programming​​.

One of the key features of HRI is its commitment to playing patient requests, a tradition that has been upheld since its inception in the 1970s. The station boasts a music library of over 120,000 tracks, ensuring they can cater to virtually any request​​.

HRI is not just about music; it also offers news updates, including Sky News on the hour, and has hosted interviews with numerous local and national celebrities and sports people over the years​​. In addition, the station's presenters have often gone on to professional radio careers, further underscoring the quality of the service it provides​.
