Getting a request on HBSA couldn’t be easier, so here’s how.

If you are a patient then dial *800 from your terminal for free as often as you would like and if we are a wee bit busy in the studio then just leave us a message on the answering machine. Also if you are a patient keep an eye open for our ward visitors around the hospital collecting your requests and your views on HBSA radio.

If you are at home and want to send a request to HBSA then you can call 01563-827017 any time and leave a message, text us a request on 07909800884 or you can email us on

We will give mention to everyone who contacts us and will play a dedicated song even if we don’t have the exact one available.

And anyone can contact us through social media at or message through Twitter @hbsaradio

Please note that during the COVID-19 Lockdown we are taking requests up to 11pm each day which will then be broadcast at 11am the next day. We cannot play specific songs but we will give mention to everyone who has a friend or relative in our hospital. Please also not that as there is nobody in the studios, our *800 and 01563827017 numbers are NOT being picked up.
