Media centre

Welcome to Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Media Centre. We aim to provide a fast, effective and accurate response to all media enquiries.

The Communications Team deals with all aspects of internal and external communication. This includes dealing with regional, national and international media enquiries, as well as keeping our 8,000 staff, NHS Foundation Trust members and the general public up-to-date about what is happening throughout the Trust.

We welcome media enquiries on a broad range of subjects. The team provides a service for the media and can help with:

  • Enquiries regarding both our hospitals, the services they offer and the services we offer in the community.

  • Background briefings, information and case studies to support stories about the Trust.

  • Arranging for experts to comment on a wide range of specialist and general healthcare issues.

  • Filming and photography requests.

We take our responsibility to protect our patients and their families, and our staff, very seriously and we have a protocol for managing media requests.
