Jubilee Hospital Radio has been broadcasting at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital since 1997 and can now be heard online.

Station manager Fred Setters said an app was something the station had wanted to do for some time, but the expertise had not been available to them before.

Then it was put in touch with a UK company, Infonote Systems, and Peter Whelan.

‘We gave them a brief of what we wanted – a very basic functional app that people could download to their smartphones or tablets,’ said Mr Setters.

‘It will make it easier not only for people to listen to broadcasts but to interact with the studio via Facebook, Twitter or email, and give a more co-ordinated system.’

The app is free and can be downloaded by going to the Apple App Store or Google Play and searching for Jubilee Hospital Radio.
