Working with the media
Media coverage of new publications
The University has a central News & Information Office (email@example.com/ 01865 280528) who work to publicise your research to the local, national and international media. If you are unsure if your publication is suitable for a press release, please contact RDM’s Public Engagement and Communications Officer, Emma O’Brien, who will be able to provide advice. It is important that you get in touch at the point when a paper is accepted rather than when it is published.
Filming and photography on hopsital sites
If there is going to be any filming or photography on any of the hospital sites, the Oxford University Hospital media team need to know at least two days in advance, as the senior management team would expect to be informed of any media activity that may impact on the reputation of the organisation (firstname.lastname@example.org). If your filming/photo involves patients, the OUH media office will advise on necessary consent and other permissions. In all instances, please let Emma O'Brien know so that she can liaise with the hospital and University press teams on your behalf.
