As our colleagues in the National Health Service ramp up efforts to deal with COVID-19, Prince Bishops Hospital Radio has taken the decision to halt all live programming from Bishop Auckland and Darlington.

As our colleagues in the National Health Service ramp up efforts to deal with COVID-19, Prince Bishops Hospital Radio has taken the decision to halt all live programming from Bishop Auckland and Darlington.

We started to limit ward visiting prior to restrictions and completed halted it before they were put in place.
The safety of our volunteers, and those in the care of the hospitals we serve is a key priority.

Not all bad news though, we continue to broadcast to the hospital community and online, bringing the latest news and entertainment to patients, staff and visitor. Some presenters will be broadcasting from their homes, so we really hope you won’t notice much difference in our output.

As we have for the past 40 years, we are constantly finding new ways to bring our service to the Patients, staff, visitors and wider hospital community. This has given us time to reflect on how we will do this on relaxation of restrictions.

From our volunteers we ask you to stay safe and support our wonderful NHS by staying home. If you can incorporate listening to Prince Bishops Hospital Radio within that, then even better. We will bring you the latest news, information and entertainment 24 hours a day.

If you would like to get in touch, please continue to do so, there may be a slightly longer delay in response.
