Radio Brockley scoops three 2014 National Hospital Radio Awards
Radio Brockley, London’s longest running hospital radio station, collected three awards at the 2014 National Hospital Radio Awards – a Gold award for Best Speech Package, a Bronze award for Station of the Year and a Silver award for Best Newcomer for presenter Molly Townson. The Best Speech package was a recording from Radio Brockley’s coverage of the hospital Christmas party attended by HRH Princess Eugenie of York who is a patron of the RNOH Redevelopment Appeal.
Emma Nouriel, trustee, at Radio Brockley said: “As London’s longest running hospital radio station, we are honoured and delighted to be recognised in hospital radio’s leading awards.
“Our aim is always to put the patient of the hospital at the heart of what we do to help with their rehabilitation. We always seek to improve and look for fresh and innovative ways of leading the way in hospital broadcasting. Over the past year we have made huge progress in developing our service to patients which includes delivering our output to their mobile devices.
Molly Townson, volunteer at Radio Brockley said of her award: “I am thrilled to be recognised by such a prestigious awards ceremony. Volunteering for Radio Brockley has allowed me to develop my communication skills whilst making a difference to the patients”.
Best Speech Package – Gold Award – Judges comments:
“This was a pleasure to listen too. It was interactive, portrayed a lovely atmosphere, and brought to life the event – as it was happening – giving the listener a real feel they were there sharing the moment. It's what radio – especially hospital radio – can do so well."
Best Newcomer – Silver award – Molly Townson – Judges comments:
"Molly has real potential. She comes alive in front of the microphone and can paint real pictures for the listeners. We really – REALLY – enjoyed it."
Station of the Year – Bronze award – Judges comments:
"This entry shows a high quality commitment to the patients, with listeners contributing and family members also playing a part – even Santa, which was one judge's personal highlight. We loved that hospital staff featured too. We thought there were lot of relevant pieces within the entry - a good breadth of programming."
