For the third year running Hospital Radio Ipswich will be broadcasting live to the patients of The Ipswich Hospital this coming Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
On Christmas Day itself no less than seven hours of live programming complete with patients requests will be available. Tim Ward head of HRI production says “There are plenty of opportunities here for patients to escape any boredom or loneliness. With all the patient participation available we hope to keep everyone happy and entertained”.
All programmes are available on the the Ipswich Hospital Hospedia System. You may also listen to Hospital Radio Ipswich Christmas Programmes on www.hri.org.uk and send messages and requests for patients.
However, the football commentary on Boxing Day will not be available online. As previously announced the Ipswich Hospital CEO Nick Hulme will be presenting his own programme on Christmas morning.
