Communications Unit 

The UCLH communications unit is the first point of contact for any media enquiries. 
We aim to respond positively and openly to the wide range of media requests we receive. These include:

  • providing clinical experts for comment on health-related issues
  • providing case studies subject to patient consent
  • overseeing filming relevant to the work of UCLH
  • providing media support during a major incident

We cannot accommodate all requests and reserve the right to decline if they conflict with the day to day running of our hospitals, our duty to respect patient and staff confidentiality or the long term interests of the UCLH. We may also decline requests which are made with limited notice.
