And a very nice comment from HBA……………..

I write to express my sincere gratitude to you and your team for your help in assisting with the Hospital Broadcasting Association’s National Conference by hosting a visit for our delegates.

Hospital Radio Stafford’s assistance to support the Hospital Broadcasting Association demonstrated how hospital radio volunteers come together to share their experiences and share best practices whilst also celebrating the benefits of what we deliver. The feedback we have received clearly indicates that our delegates thoroughly enjoyed their visit to your station.
