Trust spokespeople

We accept requests for an official comment from the hospital or for a spokesperson to talk about a particular patient, condition or treatment. We'll respond as quickly as possible but please be aware we receive a high volume of requests every week.

Photographs and Interviews

Media representatives must not access our hospital sites without the consent of the Media, PR and Communications team, and must be accompanied by a member of the media team whilst on site. Please contact us in advance to coordinate your visit.

We'll arrange all photography or interviews with patients and families, but only if consent is given. Access will also be dependent on the patient's condition and with the permission of staff involved in that patient's care. We're unable to arrange any photography or interviews outside office hours.

Written parental consent must be taken by our team before photographing or filming anyone under the age of 16.


The Trust has been involved in several TV programmes in recent years and we welcome opportunities to be a part of new projects. If you have a proposal for filming as part of a documentary or series please email it to us for consideration.
