Lifeline24 Sponsors Hospital Radio Norwich

 

Since 2013, when Lifeline24 was founded in Norwich, we’ve become the nation’s favourite provider of personal alarms. Our life-saving service eases strain on the NHS by keeping alarm users safe and independent in their homes. With our service constantly growing, we’re always looking for ways to support good causes.  That’s why we’re proud to announce our sponsorship of Hospital Radio Norwich.

HRN has got it's own skill on the Amazon smart speaker making it much easier for everyone to install the feature.

All you have to do is activate the skill by either saying 'Alexa enable skill' then when she asks which skill you reply with 'Hospital Radio Norwich'. You can also activate HRN by using your alexa app on your mobile phone. Go to add skill then search for Hospital Radio Norwich, select our app (shows our logo) then click 'enable skill'.  Once this is done you only have to say 'Alexa play Hospital Radio Norwich'

On the 12th of April HRN took the plunge and went on so listeners can hear us country wide, with the aim of allowing family & friends fo patients to be able to hear the requests.

Due to the coronavirus our studio is unmanned at present and ward visiting is currently not allowed under the current guidelines. Programmes are now being undertaken within our members homes and our phone number has been diverted to allow patients to call in and still get their favourite songs played by calling *800 from your Hospedia unit or 01603 454585

Also your family can tune in at home to share your requests as HRN is now online and phone in requests or fill out the online form for the patients

Also as the chaplains are unable to run the Sunday service in the hospital they, similarly are recording the service at home and forwarding it to HRN in time for the 10:30am broadcast
