We at RHB provide a unique and tailored broadcasting service to aid in the recovery of patients within the Royal Blackburn Hospital. We also broadcast on the internet so that patients who are looking to convalesce at home will still be able to listen.

Our objective is To relieve sickness, infirmity and old age amongst persons living in the area covered by Blackburn, Darwen, Burnley Hyndburn, Ribble Valley and surrounding areas by providing a local broadcasting service.

Future programming will help to reduce the NHS costs by broadcasting a health and well being message out to the community to better help reduce the amount of people needing to use the NHS service by taking better care of themselves.
