A hospital radio station took honours in three categories at a national awards ceremony.

Radio Brockley, the station at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, picked up the awards at the 2014 National Hospital Radio Awards.

The station won a gold award for best speech package, presenter Molly Townson won a silver award for best newcomer and the station itself won a bronze award for station of the year.

Radio Brockley trustee Emma Nouriel 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.”

The station has been entertaining patients and their families at the hospital since 1996 and is run entirely by volunteers.
