The Communications team manage media relations for the Trust and run a busy press office.
We are happy to respond to legitimate requests from journalists and provide statements on behalf of the Trust. We aim to actively promote awareness and understanding around mental health conditions and give a well-informed and balanced account of what we do, within the boundaries of our duty of confidentiality.
We should be the first point of contact for any requests for information or expert insight into mental health issues.
However, we also have a duty to our patients and colleagues, and therefore reserve the right to decline media requests if there is any potential conflict with the interests of the organisation.
You can reach us during office hours by email firstname.lastname@example.org
For urgent out-of-hours requests, please contact the switchboard on 01603 421421
