Radio Royal was formed in 1976 and commenced broadcasting in May 1977.
Initially based at the R.S.N.H. in Larbert, we have moved locations several times.
Having spent our most recent years at Falkirk, broadcasting to both Falkirk and
Stirling Royal Infirmaries, we have now returned 'home' and are based in state of
the art studios in the new Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert.
Staffed entirely by volunteers, Radio Royal now broadcasts via bedside television
sets to patients and staff at FVRH, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our live service
was suspended while we moved to our new home, but formally recommenced on October
22nd 2010, kicking off with a non-stop live 48 hour sponsored broadcast.
The Radio Royal App is now available to download from the App Store for Apple devices and it will soon be available for Android devices too. You can listen live through the App and find out lots of information about your favourite hospital radio station. Give it a try, it'll look great on your phone.
