Filming in Hospitals
Filming in Oxford University Hospitals
The Oxford University Hospital sites (John Radcliffe, Churchill, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and Horton General) are private property, and therefore the same rules apply to filming/photography inside and outside the buildings. This is to protect patient confidentiality and privacy.
All requests for filming and/or photography on hospital sites must be made in advance through their Media and Communications Unit. This applies to members of the public (including people who work for the Trust, hospital volunteers and medical students) as well as the media.
More information can be found on the University guidance for Working with Oxford’s NHS Foundation Trusts media teams
Please do not arrive on any of the hospital sites without permission. If you do so, you may be asked to leave by Trust security.
If you do obtain permission for filming and/or photography, please bear the following rules in mind at all times:
- Do not film or photograph, in a way that will identify them, patients who have not given their written consent to be filmed (The Trust can provide filming consent forms for patients)
- Do not film or photograph, in a way that will identity them, vehicle registration plates or patient records
- Obtain verbal consent from staff before filming or photographing them
- Respect the wishes and requests of any patients or staff that you are filming with.
