• Listen Live to HBSA


Like music? Like to chat? Can you spare a few hours every week?

HBSA Radio provides the hospital radio service for Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock. We’re based within the Crosshouse Hospital building and are always on the lookout for volunteers to help out by presenting programmes and helping to run the station.

We are looking for volunteers to broadcast music-based or “chat” programmes. We are keen to hear from enthusiastic people of all ages and backgrounds who feel that they have something to offer

No Experience?

You don’t need any radio experience, we provide full training at your own pace and typically our volunteers only need to spare two or maybe three hours per week.

The station has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – so why not try something different? If you’ve got a little spare time and are interested in voluntary work, then this could be the rewarding role for you!

ALSO – If you aren’t ready to go on-air

We’re looking for bright, lively and outgoing volunteers to help visit wards, collect requests and promote awareness of the service.

Ideally these volunteers will be energetic and have a cheerful, friendly personality. It will be important to be able to communicate and reach out to patients regardless of their age or background. Applicants must be able to spare at least part of one day per week to visit the hospital wards. Some experience of working with the public would be useful and a personal reference may be needed.

This is not necessarily a “broadcasting” position but could be combined for the right volunteers.
