Photography and video guidelines

Out of courtesy to other patients and visitors, photography is not allowed in any part of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) without permission.

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 ensure they or their 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, with the support of security staff when necessary.

If you need to take a photograph, please contact the Communications department.

The above advice applies to all image capture devices, including mobile phones.
