About Radio Clatterbridge

Founded in 1951, Radio Clatterbridge is one of the oldest hospital radio stations in the world. We are a registered charity run entirely by volunteers dedicated to providing an around-the-clock service of music, entertainment and information to patients, staff and visitors to Clatterbridge Health Park, Wirral, UK.

We need about thirty people to continue operating at our current level. People can volunteer to take part in any aspect of station life. People give up their spare time to present, assist on programmes, report on sporting events, visit the wards and collect requests, and catalogue music in the record library.

Radio Clatterbridge is run by an annually-elected Executive Committee (see below).
