Statement regarding our Annual Conference

The Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) has decided to cancel its Annual Conference which was due to run from Friday 27th March to Sunday 29th March, including the National Hospital Radio Awards ceremony, due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Whilst we appreciate this will be disappointing news, we have to put safety of our delegates and volunteers first. We also have to consider that our delegates visit and volunteer on NHS hospital sites across the UK and it is important that hospital radio is not a contributing factor to the spread of COVID-19 into frontline NHS operations.
