In the event of a major incident the Communications Team will make every effort to provide up-to-date and timely information to the media.
We will establish a press centre in the hospital, the directions to which will be clearly marked. This will be accessible for press conferences.
We will give the media regular updates on the situation.
Depending on the type of incident, we will decide at the time on the best vantage point for photographs and filming and provide opportunities for interviews with hospital staff.
We will update the homepage of our website regularly.
