First point of contact for the media
The PR and Communications Team at The Royal Marsden handles all media enquiries and requests for information from journalists.
We understand media deadlines, can help you develop your stories, and can quickly identify and contact the most appropriate spokesperson.
Royal Marsden staff are asked to refer any direct approaches from journalists to the PR and Communications Team, so it is quicker to start here.
We are happy to discuss possible feature, photographic and filming ideas, and will do our best to co-ordinate appropriate interviews, photography and filming requests.
We place a strong emphasis on the need for strict patient confidentiality. We will not divulge any information about a patient unless we are given permission from the individual or their next of kin.
The PR and Communications Team is available from 9am-5:30pm, Monday to Friday.
