Department Description:

Images may be used for clinical teaching/education but only if the proper level of consent has been granted.

The department also undertakes litigation/ medico-legal photography to support medical reports for solicitors and other professional groups.

Medical photography may be undertaken in the medical photography studio, on the wards or other departments within the hospital.
