Press releases are in the News section of our website and you can also find them together with other current topics and snippets on our Facebook page.

Media

Please contact the communications team on 0113 2066244 or email communications.lth@nhs.net

This is also the number for general media calls and inquiries during office hours (which are normally Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.30pm). 

Out of hours, urgent media inquiries should be directed to our on-call number, 07717 805932.

Filming and photography

Photographers and film-makers wishing to come on to any of the sites owned by the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust must seek permission in advance from the Trust's Communications Team.

This rule also applies to amateur photographers/film-makers and PR or journalism students in training.

Please email communications.lth@nhs.net or phone 0113 2066244 with any enquiries.

Patient condition checks

A separate arrangement exists for patient condition checks for the media, which are handled by the hospital bed board on 0113 2065119.

Condition checks can only be given when the name and address of the patient is known, and the condition check will usually be a one word response, eg "stable" or "critical" - we cannot enter into discussions about the health of any of our patients.

Please note we reserve the right not to give out any information if a patient or family ask us not to do so.
