Patient condition checks

If you are a member of the media and wish to request an update on a patient’s condition, you need to phone the Communications team and have the patient’s full name and date of birth and/or first line of their address.

We are unable to locate patients without this information. We will not give any information to the media without the consent of the patient or the patient’s next of kin.
