Programmes


Radio Sunderland for Hospitals has come a long way in the sixty plus years we have been broadcasting.
From initially being on-air for just a few hours once a week or so during Sunderland AFC and Newcastle United home games, we now broadcast a variety of programmes direct to the patients bedsides and online 24 hours a day.

By using the links on this page the you can listen online while you discover what's on Radio Sunderland at the moment.

We also broadcast a series of short public service announcements throughout our daily programmes.
They are included very much like advertisements are in the programmes of commercial radio stations, in fact we carry messages from the NHS, government departments and national charities that can also be heard on public radio as well as local home grown announcements that we have helped to produce.
Our “Notice board” is intended to provide and publicise information on health promotion and wellbeing, prevention of ill health or injury, details of benefits, services, support organisations and assistance available to those suffering or have suffered illness or injury and their carers.
If you would like us to produce an announcement for you why not contact us for further information.

Listen to our programme showcase, just click on play below and hear a taster of some of our programmes.

 

Requests

Requests
The building housing our studio at Monkwearmouth Hospital has been scheduled for demolition.
This has resulted in the need to relocate our studio.

Until a new permanent home can be found, we now broadcasting from a “virtual studio”.
Because of COVID, we have also had to suspended our ward visiting service to protect the health and safety of patients, staff and our volunteers.

Regrettably this means that we are unable to broadcast our full schedule of programmes.
Unfortunately for the time being we are unable to play patients record requests.

In the meantime, we hope that listeners will continue to enjoy listening to the rest of our programmes.

Football

FootballWe regret that due to the temporary closure of our studio, until further notice, we are unable to provide live football commentary

Football commentary is where it all started for us and we still cover every Sunderland A.F.C. home game.

We have a dedicated sports team, with commentators in the media area at the Stadium of Light and a studio based production team providing up to the minute sports news, half time scores and of course, a round up of all the day's football action after the match.

By joining forces with our hospital radio colleagues at Radio Tyneside we are also able to broadcast selected commentaries of Newcastle United games direct from St. James's Park.

"Why can't I hear Sunderland AFC football commentaries via the website 'Listen' button?"

Radio Sunderland for Hospitals only holds a licence to broadcast live football commentary to local hospitals.

Our Internet service is available across the UK and around the world and therefore we need to provide an alternative service to our online listeners instead. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes, but of course hospital patients can still listen for free to the live commentary on all SAFC home games provided by Radio Sunderland by tuning their bedside units to "Hospital Radio" which can be found by pressing the "Radio" button and selecting "Channel 1".
