News and media

The press office is the point of contact for all journalists. 

We are responsible for coordinating filming and photography requests, as well as putting you in contact with experts who can advise on a particular health topic or take part in interviews. 

Media enquiries 

If you have a media enquiry please contact the press office directly on 0208 869 2235 or email lnwh-tr.communications@nhs.net. We are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. 

If you are calling out-of-hours, please contact the on-call press officer:

Mark Purcell: 07721 621 204
Stephanie Lee: 07932 749 211

Condition checks

Condition checks will only be provided if you have the name, address and date of birth of the patient concerned. Even then, we will seek consent from the patient or the patients’ relatives before releasing any information. Without consent, no patient information can be disclosed.

Please call the press office to request a condition check on 0208 869 2421. Do not contact the wards or departments directly. 

Filming and photography requests 

If you would like to film or take photographs at one of our hospitals or community sites you must obtain permission from the press office.

Under no circumstances should filming and photography be carried out without permission from the press office. Anyone who is found filming or taking photographs on our property without permission will be asked to leave immediately.
