Short-term Restricted Service Licences (RSL)

From time-to-time, and usually to mark Hospital Broadcasting Week, BRIDGEfm Hospital Radio has been generally granted permission to increase the power of our FM transmissions giving everyone in the local area a unique chance to hear hospital radio without having to be in hospital!

To hear the best variety of music, chat and specialist programmes throughout the day and a special Request Programme from and for the patients each night from 7pm, tune to 87.7fm on your normal radio during our next RSL broadcast.

The Hospital Broadcasting Association is the national charity that supports and promotes Hospital Broadcasting in the UK. Hospital Broadcasting Week takes place annually to help promote the work of Hospital Broadcasting services across the UK. Click to visit the HBA website.

Other FM licences
