Media Enquiries

Although the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is a Voluntary hospital, it is a public sector organisation. As we are accountable to the public both directly and through the media, we wish to respond positively to all reasonable media requests.

The Communications team is in the best position to help you. We can help with your requests including:

  • Facilitating photographic opportunities such as the first baby of the New Year
  • Overseeing filming which is relevant to the work of the hospital
  • Providing media support during a major news story

On occasion we have to decline media requests for operational or other reasons, including patient or staff confidentiality. If you have a request, please contact our switchboard on 01 4085200 and ask for the on-call Press Officer.

PATIENT CONDITION CHECKS

We have a duty to protect patient confidentiality. In April 2011, the HSE instructed hospitals not to provide media outlets with limited patient information i.e. condition checks. We regret that we can no longer accept requests for condition checks.
