The press office is responsible for media relations on behalf of Barts Health NHS Trust including patients transferred from under the care of London's Air Ambulance, also known as Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS).
During office hours, all media enquiries should be directed to the press office where they will be evaluated and dealt with appropriately. This is particularly important in ensuring that information given about Barts Health is accurate, consistent and up to date.
