Filming and photography

CUH is a major teaching hospital trust and receives a high number of requests for filming and photography on its premises.

We cannot accommodate all requests and reserve the right to decline if they conflict with operational requirements, our duty to respect patient and staff confidentiality or the long-term interests of the Trust. We may also decline requests which are made with limited notice.

Please note:

  • The Trust does not normally facilitate location requests or requests to film/photograph general shots of the hospital and/or ‘pieces to camera’ that do not directly relate to the work of the Trust
  • It may be necessary to sign a filming contract in advance of specific projects
  • We do not normally allow filming or photography in our Accident and Emergency department
  • We do not provide parking facilities for camera crews

During filming and photography:

Film crews and photographers must be accompanied by a member of Trust staff at all times. Rigorous infection control procedures must be respected; for example, hand gel must be used on entering and leaving clinical areas. No patients or staff may be filmed without obtaining proper consent.
