Southport Hospital radio back in a Heartbeat

Picture shows Cllr Doreen Stephenson, Mayor of West Lancashire 2014/15 (seated), with station manager Bill Jarvis, Eric Phipps from the Trust IT team and Radio Heartbeat volunteers

HOSPITAL radio has returned to Southport after an absence of more than 2 years.  Radio Heartbeat is transmitting to Southport via the internet thanks to support from the Mayor of West Lancashire's charity and a gift of technical equipment from cloud technologies provider Novosco.

Station manager Bill Jarvis said:- "We're thrilled to be taking our service to Southport after 36 years broadcasting only to Ormskirk Hospital patients. The system uses a Barix streaming system and patients at Southport hear broadcasts from Ormskirk 9 miles away a mere 5 seconds after they're transmitted from our studio. I am particularly grateful to the mayor's charity, Novosco and the technical support we have received from the Trust IT team."

Radio Heartbeat is run by a team of volunteers and broadcasts 24 hours a week. Patients can listen for free on the entertainment centre at their bedside.

Cllr Doreen Stephenson was Mayor of West Lancashire in 2014/15 and also raised money for Homestart Central Lancashire and the Skem Men-Aces football team.
