Media enquiries

Media enquiries should be directed to comms.salivatest@uhs.nhs.uk.

The communications team will make every effort to answer enquiries promptly between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Enquiries received outside of these hours will be responded to with best endeavours, or when the press office is next open.

The team is only able to take enquiries from accredited journalists and other media representatives. We are unfortunately not resourced to assist students, amateur film-makers or any other enquiries that will not result in information being widely published.

The press office should be your first point of contact. All other programme staff have been advised to refer any approaches from members of the media to the communications team.

Please be aware that we log all media contact on a secure database, comprising the name and contact details of the enquirer, the questions asked and replies given. This is done for auditing and legally-required disclosure purposes.
