Press office

Media enquiries

All press office activity is undertaken by our Communications Team. It welcomes enquiries from press/media and is available at 020 8401 3959 and chs.comms@nhs.net.

For media enquiries outside of normal office hours (9am to 5:30pm) and at weekends, please instead call the Trust’s main switchboard on 020 8401 3000 and ask for the Press Officer On-Call.

The team is based at Croydon University Hospital and answers media enquiries about all of Croydon Health Services NHS Trust’s activities, including community NHS care, GP hubs and both hospitals.

Our press releases

Our press releases that we send to journalists are amalgamated into all our main news stories, which are available on our Trust news page.

Patient condition checks

Patient condition checks should be referred to the Communications Team. Note that the team may require several details before it can proceed and will also request consent from the patient/relatives.

Interview and filming requests

Please contact the Communications Team directly if you wish to request a media interview or to undertake filming at our Trust. They will get back to you quickly and can arrange appropriate spokespeople.
