The trust is a public sector organisation and accountable to the public both directly and through the media. The communications team respond positively and openly to all reasonable media requests. It is extremely important that journalists use the communications team in the first instance as we are in the best position to find the information you need quickly or provide an authoritative source for your story.
We facilitate a wide range of media requests including:
The trust reserves the right to decline media requests which conflict with operational requirements, our duty to respect patient and staff confidentiality, or which we feel are not in the long-term interests of the trust.
Members of the communications team are available to help journalists writing for the national, regional, trade and specialist media. We are the first point of contact for all media enquiries, including breaking news and major developments.
