The Inquiry recognises that the media and social media has an important role to play in reporting on its work. Coverage resulting from the Inquiry’s activities improves community understanding of the issues being examined.

The Inquiry is committed to being as transparent as possible and will release as much information about its work as possible, subject to legal or operational issues.  Once released the information will be hosted on our website, which we are in the process of redesigning to meet the needs of the Inquiry going forward.

If you have any questions about information or are having trouble finding a piece of information, please contact us via our email address info@ucpi.org.uk. Accredited journalists can also contact us via our press office press.queries@ucpi.org.uk
