Radio and television

All inpatients have access to the radio. On most wards, inpatients will also have a bedside TV.

We provide earphones for listening to TV and radio. To avoid any risk of infection, we sell earphones for a nominal charge or you can use your own. You can take your earphones home with you and use them again on each visit.

We are currently installing a new bedside system that will include television, telephone and internet services.

Radio Marsden

Radio Marsden is broadcast for patients from studios in Chelsea and Sutton. The station is on air 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can find it on TV channel 17 on your bedside television.

A list of programmes, including a patients' request show, is available on all wards or in the Radio Marsden Patient's Guide. If you can’t see a copy by your bed, please ask a Radio Marsden ward visitor for one or call us on extension 3083.
