Welcome to the Press Office and Media Centre.

We are committed to working with media organisations to ensure that our services and activities are accurately represented to wider audiences. The Communications Team proactively issues news about service developments, staff achievements, publications and reports and other Trust news, whilst also responding to incoming media requests.

Many of our staff are experts in their particular field of healthcare, and interviews with staff or background briefings about our services can often be arranged through the Communications Team. Copies of all our recent press releases and archived press releases are available through the links on the left of this page.

For general press enquiries please email trust.communications@pat.nhs.uk and also Communications.Email@srft.nhs.uk
