One of our care workers was approached for comments and photographs this morning by a national newspaper.
There are lots of freelance journalists looking for stories just now, so if someone approaches you, please ask them to contact me instead of giving an interview yourself.

It’s really important that all media enquiries come to me and I can establish whether they are genuine and whether the Partnership wants to engage with them or not. I can also find out if you actually want to be interviewed, photographed etc and if not, find a work-around.
It’s very naughty of them to take advantage of you when you are working and unprepared (and in this case without the opportunity to freshen up make-up and run a comb through their hair!) So, let me know if you are approached and I’ll take it from there.
