Media Centre

Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District welcomes interest from media in our services, facilities, research projects and community programs.

The Office of Media and Communications team can help journalists with interviews, story leads and requests for photography and filming at our facilities.

We frequently post stories on our news pages, Facebook page  and Twitter feed. We also have a YouTube Channel.

Media Visits

Our priority is the health, well-being and privacy of our patients and their families.

For these reasons all media visiting our facilities must be escorted by a member of our media team.

Our team can also help media identify the best locations for filming and photography.

Privacy

We are serious about protecting privacy.

Information about patients will not be released without the patient’s or their guardian’s permission.

Patients, visitors and staff can only be filmed or photographed with their express written permission.

Our team can direct media crews to on-site short stay parking/loading zones for use to unload heavy equipment.

Filming and Photography

Most of our facilities operate 24 hours a day seven days a week. Our priority is the welfare and privacy of our patients and their families.

To help us consider requests for non-news media filming and photography, a location request form must be completed.

Non-news media may include:

  • television documentaries
  • scripted television series
  • reality television series
  • feature films
  • television commercials
  • student productions
  • commercial stills photography shoots

A copy of the Certificate of Currency for the production company’s public liability insurance is also required. 

We will use the information you provide to consider your request to film or photograph on our property.

We reserve the right to withdraw consent at any time due to operational requirements or if the production crew breach the agreed conditions for shooting at our facilities.

We may recover our costs for arranging and supervising on-site filming and photography.

Please contact the Office of Media and Communications on NBMLHD-media@health.nsw.gov.au for more information.
