Borders Hospital Radio Service has been broadcasting from the Borders General Hospital near Melrose since October 1988. Our purpose is to provide a radio service to patients, visitors and staff within the hospital and help contribute to a more positive atmosphere.
There has been a lot of research carried out which suggests music can ease stress, lift your mood – and even aid in the recovery of patients. Whilst we don’t claim to rival modern medicine, we do aim to make the duration of a patient’s stay in hospital as enjoyable as it can be by lifting spirits through music.
Borders Hospital Radio Service is delighted to support the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service. Listen out for their "infomercials" which we have scheduled at regular intervals in our regular broadcasts.
