Areas of our hospitals are, from time to time, photographed or filmed for a variety of purposes, including live news broadcasts and locations for documentaries or dramas.
If you would like to use our sites as a location for photography or filming, please contact the Communications Team on +44 (0)20 8934 3843 or email us Comms@kingstonhospital.nhs.uk.
Please note that certain conditions and charges may apply. Photography and filming is not allowed in some areas of the hospital, such as A&E, as patient care is always a priority and we have a duty to protect the confidentiality of our patients.
Please note that anyone who is found to be filming or photographing at our hospitals without the permission of the Trust’s communications team will be asked to leave immediately, footage and photographs may be confiscated.
We make a charge for any filming or photography in our hospital other than that which is to be used for news footage or for the Trust’s own purposes.
Our charges are typically £250 per hour with a minimum period of four hours, plus any extra charges that may applicable, for example for parking. We also charge £50 for organisations who wish to carry out a recce of our hospitals and grounds. All income is reinvested into the Trust.
You will be expected to provide a copy of your public liability insurance document to the Communications Team before any photography or filming commences.
Information for students
We aim to accommodate reasonable requests from students for information, filming and photography. To make a request for information, filming or photography at the Hospital, please put it in writing to the press and communications team: email@example.com
We will try and help where we can, but please be aware that during busy times we may not be able to accommodate your request.
Photography and Filming
No photography or filming is permitted without prior arrangement and agreement from the Communications Team, which may not always be possible as our patients always come first and we have a duty to protect their safety and confidentiality.
Anyone found filming or taking photographs on the trust premises without the permission of the trust’s communications team will be asked to leave by the security department and footage and photographs may be confiscated.
