Radio Northwick Park has been nominated for a string of awards at the National Hospital Radio Awards.

The station has been nominated for five awards at the ceremony which will take place in Blackpool in March.

Volunteer Aaron Rice is up for best male presenter, Lauren Rich for best female presenter, Wendy Sherer for best newcomer and Guy Rubin for specialist music programme.

The station, which broadcasts to the patients of Northwick Park Hospital, is also nominated for its station promotion.

The awards are voted on by experts from the BBC, news organisations and professional broadcasters.

Programme controller Adam Glynn said he was “thrilled” to be shortlisted.

He added: “I’m incredibly proud of the effort all of our volunteers put in to their entries this year – the standards are always high, and to get five nominations is fantastic.

“I’m very excited about heading to the awards in Blackpool in March.”
