Trust AM relies on various organisations for us to function. Premier Bedside is the radio system on the side of patients beds. HBA is the Hospital Broadcasting Associating, a national charity. Whilst we are the hospital radio for Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Bassetlaw Hospital. Read about all of the four below.
Bassetlaw Hospital in Worksop has 300 beds. Each year, the hospital treats around 33,000 patients along with 38,000 emergencies in the A&E Department.
It's situated in the residential area of Kilton, about half a mile from Worksop town centre. The A1, M1 and M18 are all in close proximity of Doncaster (25 minutes), Sheffield (30 minutes) and Nottingham (40 minutes) are within an easy drive.
A local bus route from the town centre runs through the hospital grounds. There is also scheduled transport which takes patients and staff to Doncaster Royal Infirmary and back again.
Doncaster Royal Infirmary provides a full range of services appropriate to a large district general hospital in 800 beds. Each year the hospital treats around 150,000 patients along with 95,500 A&E patients (combined figures for Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Montagu Hospital).
The Royal Infirmary is situated 1 mile from the town centre and is easily accessible due to good public transport routes and its location in the centre of the M1, M62, M18 and A1(M).
A new, free Park & Ride scheme began on Monday 3 August 2010 as the first step in solving the long-standing parking problems at Doncaster Royal Infirmary (DRI).
Premier Telesolutions supplies a complete solution for Hospital Bedside Services
Established in 1991, the organisation has an extensive range of bedside solutions which covers all hospital requirements.
Approved by NHS PASA, you can find Premier Bedside throughout Bassetlaw Hosptial, Doncaster Royal Infirmary and numerous other UK hospitals.
The Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA), more formally known as the National Association of Hospital Broadcasting Organisations (NAHBO) is the national charity that supports and promotes Hospital Broadcasting in the UK.
The association currently consists of over 200 individual broadcasting stations. Just like the HBA, almost all of our member stations are managed and staffed by volunteers. These volunteers come from all walks of life from students to the retired and from every industry you can imagine.
Patients in many UK hospitals benefit from programmes designed to make life better for people in hospital and aid their recovery. The volunteers within the hospital radio and television stations work tirelessly to provide this on an increasingly 24-hour basis.
