Our communications and engagement team handles all media enquiries on behalf of Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
Our aim is to work with the media positively and proactively and to respond to all media enquiries within three hours.
On rare occasions, where the enquiry is of a highly sensitive or complex nature this might take slightly longer, but we will always work with you to ensure deadlines are met.
Patient confidentiality is our priority and therefore we are unable to disclose any information about a patient unless we are given permission from the individual. We are also unable to share information about a patient’s treatment, care or diagnosis.
Interviews, filming or photography is prohibited on or around trust sites and needs our prior permission.
To obtain permission, or to arrange an interview with trust staff, please contact the communications and engagement team who will be happy to help with your request.
Switchboard: 01865 901000. Please ask to speak to the Communications and Engagement team.
For urgent media enquiries out of hours (Monday to Thursday 5pm to 9am and from Friday 5pm to Monday 9am) please contact our main switchboard: 01865 901000 and ask to speak to the duty director.
They will link in with the on-call communications and engagement manager as required.
