Inverness Hospital Radio has around 30 members - many (most!) over the age of 50. We provide programmes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week thanks to technology and we present 1 or 2 live programmes each day. We always welcome new members but appreciate that people who are interested may not know what we do. If you would like initially just to have a look around then just get in touch so we can arrange something.

Most of us had no experience in radio when we started so don’t be put off. There are many other aspects to being part of Inverness Hospital Radio. A few of our members don’t present programmes but go round and visit patients to collect requests or some members are interested in the technical side of things. There’s something for everybody. See our website or Facebook page for more details.
