Join Our Team
Radio DGH is always looking
to increase its membership base and if you feel you could bring
something to the station, then we’d be interested in hearing
We have all sorts of volunteer
• Programme Assistants
• Publicity & Marketing
• Engineering & IT Support
• Local News and Sport
Most people (but not all) are interested
in doing something “on air”.
The usual process that new recruits take is to spend some time
working with an existing presenter as a “Programme Assistant”
– a “PA”. You will visit the wards, collect
requests, often read out the requests and gradually be shown “the
ropes” at a speed which suits you and you confidence.
Once both you and the Programme
Controller are happy with your progress and commitment, and subject
to availability, you will be offered your own programme.
New members have to be “vetted”
by the Hospital Trust. This includes CRB checks and referencing,
as you will have access to large areas of the hospital and these
are designed to protect both you, the Trust and the patients.
You will also be required to attend an induction course and will
also have to be briefed annually on essential Health and Safety.
As Radio DGH is run entirely by
volunteers, our presenters are expected to help raise funds to
keep the station “alive”. This may be through attending
fundraising events, acquiring show sponsorship from local companies
and also through presenter membership, which is currently less
than 50p per week. Only full members (Presenters and Committee)
are required to pay membership, and only full members can stand
for committee and vote at our meetings and AGM.
