Communications team

The Communications Team at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust provides a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week service. 

We are committed to managing the reputation of the Trust. When positive and negative things arise, we can help our staff, patients and the media with any queries they may have.

About Us

The Communications Team are here to help the media access information and ask questions about Leicester’s Hospitals. We also deal with requests for interviews, filming and photography of our staff and our sites. We aim to respond positively, openly and promptly to all reasonable media requests.

We can assist with requests about the condition of patients being treated at our hospitals (known as ‘condition checks’), however, certain rules and guidelines apply.

We are also keen to promote the work of Leicester’s Hospitals, and actively promote exciting and ground-breaking developments made by our staff, including world and UK firsts.
