Interviews With Patients

In some cases, we are able to arrange interviews with current or former patients. Patient confidentiality is our primary concern when collaborating with the media and any filming, photography or interviews need to be agreed upon with the clinical team beforehand. We cannot always guarantee that you will be able to show the identity of the subject, this is up to the individual.

All requests need to be passed between various staff members and we request that you describe, in writing, in as much detail as possible what you would like from Castle Craig.
