If you are calling out of hours, please contact the hospital's switchboard on Tel 0151 426 1600 and they will direct your call appropriately.
Journalists who would like to be added to our media distribution lists are welcome to contact us.
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 co-ordinate your visit.
We will 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 are 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.
