About the Arts Programme at NUH

Megan Dawes stands in the corridor at QMC and she is smiling brightly and looking at the camera.

Led by our specialist Arts Co-ordinator Megan Dawes, the programme’s remit is to support the wellbeing and mental health of patients, staff and visitors across all hospital sites. Whether that’s through creating new corridor galleries of art to enjoy, or hosting interactive workshops for people to get involved with – the programme is a huge success and a firm favourite with patients and staff alike.

The Arts Programme involves organising a range of creative sessions from music to poetry for patients and staff across the Trust, as well as supporting areas with visual arts enhancements.

This also means working closely with the Staff Wellbeing team, to add arts forms to their already brilliantly varied programme for all NUH staff.

Arts at NUH has also been shortlisted for a Patient Experience National Network Award (PENNA) and went on to win the Environment of Care category. You can read more about the submission on the NUH website.

“I believe that the arts are fundamental to our daily lives – we listen to music, we watch TV, we read and we dance – they help to bring us closer and make us feel better. I hope that providing more arts opportunities in Nottingham’s hospitals will help our patients and staff to feel happier, healthier and better connected to the outside world during what may be a difficult time.” - Megan Dawes, Arts Co-ordinator at Nottingham Hospitals Charity
