Media contact

The Trust has a Communications Office as the point of contact for all media enquiries – from breaking news and patient condition checks to requests for interviews and specialist features.

To protect patient confidentiality, dignity and respect, and to ensure that frontline health care services are not disrupted, all media enquiries should come to the Communications Office (not direct to wards or individual staff members).

No filming or photography can take place on any Trust site without permission having been given first by the Communications office or duty manager.

Opening hours:

The Communications Office is available Monday to Friday, 8.30am until 5pm, except on Bank or Public Holidays.


Outside office hours:

Media representatives should call the hospital switchboard and ask for the comms on-call manager.
