Medical illustration

The Barts Health medical illustration team provides a comprehensive medical photography and design service.

Medical photography

Clinical photography can be requested from the Trust's Medical Illustration team, based a The Royal London Hospital, and from Medical Photography at Whipps Cross Hospital.

The teams normally photograph patients in one of our dedicated studios but clinical photographers can visit wards, clinics, theatres or other trust hospitals by prior arrangement. Clinical photography includes specialised areas of imaging such as ophthalmic photography and high magnification macro-photography.

All clinical photography must be requested using one of our medical photography consent forms and images taken of patients are readily accessible through our database system Fotoweb.

There is restricted access to this system and you must register first by contacting the team: or, telephone: 020 3594 2189.

Video recording

This service is available from medical photography at Whipps Cross. Videos must be requested using a video recording consent form. A separate staff consent form is also needed if members of staff are to appear in a video.

Medico-legal photography

Male or female photographers can undertake medico-legal work including photographing external anatomy and intra-oral views.

Reprographic service

The team can digitally copy artwork and have equipment for flatbed scanning of x-rays, CT scans and 35mm slides.

Further information can be found on the WeShare Photography and videography pages or by contacting the Medical Illustration team: email:, telephone: 020 3594 2189.
