Guidance for the press
If you would like information on any Hospital news stories or would like to arrange an interview/photograph or filming on the Hospital campus, please contact the CEO's office. The information required by the CEO's office is available below in the Making a request section.
To ensure patient confidentiality, interviews, filming or photography cannot be carried out without permission from the CEO's office.
We place great emphasis on the need for the strictest confidentiality in respect of our patients. We cannot divulge any information about a patient unless we are given permission from the individual or their next of kin. All requests for interviewing/photographing patients must be made through the CEO's office.
