How to listen to us in the hospital

Simply select Channel 3 during our broadcast times on the patient headsets and listen on the headset tubes attached to the control unit.

Each day room has a speaker and a selector switch. Simply select Channel 4 or D (it is usually marked with a sticker) and adjust the volume level.

In the Pierremont Unit, each day room and rest area is fitted with a loudspeaker. On the bottom of each loudspeaker is a white switch, simply switch to on and adjust the volume using the rotary control knob on the side of the unit.

During times when Radio Skerne is not broadcasting, an alternative local radio service is relayed through the system.
