Media enquiries

The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust press office is open for enquiries from members of the press and media 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

We are responsible for ensuring whenever patients are photographed, filmed or interviewed, there is full written consent to do so. We also supervise all media filming on our sites (filming at weekends is only permitted in rare instances) and have a range of staff experts on hand to be interviewed, so please call us in the first instance.

If you would like to film part of a documentary, programme or series, please contact the press office to discuss feasibility.
