Taking Photographs

If you are a patient or visitor in one of our hospitals, please be mindful of the privacy and dignity of our patients. Do not take photographs or video of them without their permission. Please be mindful of other patients who may, for example, be in the background of a photograph of someone you’re visiting.

The media and other visitors must not take photographs in our hospitals at all without prior permission from the Communications Department. This is to protect the confidentiality of other patients and our staff and to ensure patient information is not recorded without their consent. Our staff take the privacy and dignity of our patients very seriously, and will ask people who ignore these restrictions to stop immediately, and have the support of security staff in doing so.

If you need to take a photograph, please speak to your ward manager or contact the Communications Department on 0121 507 5303.
