“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

About the Arts Programme at NUH

The programme is designed to support the wellbeing and mental health of patients, staff and visitors across Nottingham City Hospital, Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham Children’s Hospital and Ropewalk House. From creating new scenic corridors with painted murals and galleries of art to holding interactive workshops for people to get involved in, since its launch, the programme has been a huge success.

The Arts Programme helps to organise a wide range of creative sessions from music for patients on the stroke ward to poetry to celebrate World Kindness Day, our Arts Programme works hard to support areas with visual arts enhancement.

This means working closely with the Staff Wellbeing team and ward managers, to add all different art forms to their already outstanding programmes and support.

The Arts Programme has also been shortlisted for numerous awards including 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.
