Trust Communications Team

During office hours, all media enquiries should be directed to the Communications Team on 01539 716675 .

This is particularly important in ensuring that information given about University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust is accurate, consistent and up to date.

Please direct all press enquiries regarding the Trust, its staff or patients, to the Communications Team on 01539 716675 / 01524 519320 or communications.team@mbht.nhs.uk.
