Volunteers in the studioFounded 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 30 people to continue broadcasting 24 hours a day. Our volunteers 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. We receive funding from our members, donations and grants and receive support from organisations on the health park and in the local community.
