Programmes are now being undertaken within our members homes and our phone number has been diverted to allow patients to call in and still get their favourite songs played by calling *800 from your Hospedia unit or 01603 454585
Also your family can tune in at home to share your requests as HRN is now online and phone in requests or fill out the online form for the patients
Also as the chaplains are unable to run the Sunday service in the hospital they, similarly are recording the service at home and forwarding it to HRN in time for the 10:30am broadcast
