Welcome to Radio Frimley Park

Studio 1 at Radio Frimley Park Welcome to Radio Frimley Park, the dedicated radio station for the patients of Frimley Park Hospital. We broadcast round the clock – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to inform, educate and make the patients' stay in the hospital more enjoyable with regular quizzes, playing requests and of course some great music.

The charity has been operating since 1976 and continues to go from strength to strength.

70 years of the NHS

On July 5th, the NHS is turning 70 years old. It was created by the minister for health and housing Aneurin Bevan on July 5th 1948. The government sent out a leaflet to every house in the country with a simple message about its impact, “It will relieve your money worries in time of illness.”

The principle of healthcare is exactly the same today. “Free at the point of delivery based on need, not wealth.”

Like his father Aneurin Bevan started out as a miner and rose through the ranks of the South Wales Miner’s Federation, to become chair of his local miners’ lodge at just 19. He became MP for Ebbw Vale in 1929.

The NHS is the UK’s largest employer, with over 1.5 million staff from all over the world and more than 350 different careers. Today’s NHS is rising to the challenge of a growing and ageing population, which means huge pressures on the service.

All of us here at Radio Frimley Park wish the NHS a very happy birthday and our very best wishes for the future of this brilliant institution, and also a big thank you to the dedicated and enthusiastic staff that have made the NHS what it is today.
