All media enquiries should be directed to the Communications Team on tel: 0161 276 4430 / 701 8597, email: comms@cmft.nhs.uk. If you have an urgent media enquiry relating to our hospitals at evenings and at weekends, please call the switchboard number 0161 276 1234 and you will be directed to the on-call communications lead.
