Dealing with major incidents

Like all NHS Trusts, King’s College Hospital has a plan to help us manage major incidents and large-scale emergencies directly or indirectly involving the Trust. This plan includes arrangements for the media.

In the event of a major incident:

  • The Media team will provide regular updates via the Trust Twitter account. Follow @KingsCollegeNHS for the latest information.
  • We will make every effort to provide up-to-date and timely information to the media.
  • Depending on the nature of the incident, there may be an opportunity for interviews with hospital staff.
  • We will update the homepage of our website regularly.
