Radio DGH is always looking to increase its membership base and if you feel you could bring something to the station, then we’d be interested in hearing from you. We have all sorts of volunteering roles, including Programme Assistants, Presenting, Fundraising, Publicity & Marketing, Engineer & IT Support, and Local News & Sport.


The usual process that new recruits take is to spend some time working with an existing presenter as a “Programme Assistant”. You will visit the wards, collect requests, often read out the requests and gradually be shown “the ropes” at a speed which suits you and your confidence. Once both you and the Programme Controller are happy with your progress and commitment, and subject to availability, you will be offered your own programme.

New members have to be “vetted” by the Hospital Trust. This includes DBS checks and referencing, as you will have access to large areas of the hospital. These are designed to protect both you, the Trust, and the patients. You will also be required to attend an induction course and be briefed on Health and Safety.
