Patients, staff and visitors at South Tyneside District Hospital can now enjoy music and chat with their coffee as Radio South Tyneside now broadcasts to Alexanders Coffee Shop in the Ingham Wing.
With the help of the Trust, speakers have been installed which enables the stations programmes to be heard around the coffee shop as well as in the out patients department.
Station Manager Ron Cameron said “We have been in discussion with the Trust for some time about widening the availability of our free service around the hospital and by installing the speakers more of the community around the hospital can now listen. Having a wider audience enables us to provide a background soundtrack to the hospital day as well as informing patients, visitors and staff of other services available.”
“2016 is our 60th Anniversary and this additional output is a stepping stone to providing an online service for the whole of South Tyneside.”
