How press can contact Liverpool University Hospitals

Media enquiries

All media must request permission to access our hospital sites for interviews, filming and/or photography, and media will be accompanied by a member of the Communications team while on Trust premises. 

We have a wide range of leading clinicians at the Trust who can provide expert comment on a variety of health matters such as infectious diseases, sexual health, eye health, dental health, stroke, kidney transplant, end of life care, clinical research and a wide range of cancers. 

If you would like to arrange an interview with any of our clinicians this must be arranged through the Communications team. We provide a responsive service and will endeavour to support your requirements and deadlines as best we can.
To contact the Communications team, please:

Out of hours, please call 0151 706 2000 and ask for the tactical on-call lead.

Condition checks

If you are a member of the media and wish to request an update on a patient's condition, then you will need to email the Communications team with the patient's full name, date of birth and/or first line of their address.

We will be unable to locate patients without this information.

We will not give any information to the media without the consent of the patient or their next of kin.

Filming requests

We have supported many high-profile TV documentary series including BBC2’s Hospital, BBC3's Junior Doctors, The Discovery Channel's Bugs, Bites and Parasites as well as BBC Panorama.

If you would like to speak to a member of the team regarding filming, please contact us as above.
