Media and communications 

As a public sector organisation 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
  • condition checks
  • overseeing filming relevant to the work of the trust
  • providing media support during a major incident


We reserve the right to decline media requests where these conflict with operational requirements, our duty to respect patient and staff confidentiality or the long-term interests of UCLH.
