Press office

The press office handles all media relations and should be the first point of contact for all journalists and people looking to undertake filming or photography within Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Our clinicians are very busy and should not be contacted directly.


The press office can be contacted by emailing

  • Cymbeline Moore, Director of Communications
  • Jo Cullen, Head of External Communications and Marketing
  • Megan French, External Communications Manager - 07395 852189
  • Maddie Smith, Media Officer - 07729 102247

We run an out of hours media service that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you have an urgent or out of hours request, please call the GOSH switchboard on 020 7405 9200 and ask to be directed to the on-call press officer.

Non-urgent requests will be dealt with within working hours.

Please note, we do not take sales calls. If you have a service to offer please email and only chase on email.

Filming and Photography

No filming or photography can take place within the hospital without the direct consent of the press office.

Crews and photographers must be accompanied at all times by a member of the press team whilst on site. We are a busy hospital and any filming or photography must be sensitive to the environment of the hospital and the patients, families and staff.

All patients and families must give written consent to be part of any filming or photography.

Please get in touch with the press office on the contacts above to discuss your requirements.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we cannot accommodate location filming or student filming.


We welcome approaches from production companies with ideas for longer-form documentary projects.

We receive a large number of proposals and review these on a quarterly basis.

We will not confirm involvement in any programme before firm commission.

Please contact us on to discuss any ideas.
