The Communications Team provides specialist support to the Trust, media and other partners with their work. We help with all requests for filming, interviews and statements from the media and other stakeholders.
We also manage the Trust’s internal and external channels and provide appropriate advertising opportunities for third parties.
Please note that The Communications Team is not able to deal with requests for patient records and information, changes to appointments, access to medical information or support in finding a loved one.
The Communications team must be the initial point of contact for any media, journalists or photographers. Please do NOT attend our hospital site without permission.
Anyone who is found to be filming or photographing on one of our sites without the permission of the Trust’s communications team will be asked to leave immediately, and footage and photographs may be confiscated or legal advice sought. All filming requests will be considered on an individual basis.
If you need further information or would like to arrange an interview, please contact us in advance.
For urgent queries out-of-hours, please contact the Trust's switchboard on 01246 277 271 and ask to be put through to on-call communications. This should only be used for time-critical, urgent enquiries.
