A varied programme of patient and staff-focused creative activities and performance as well as artistic enhancements across our five sites. We work in partnership with the Facilities and Estates to create artwork for any new ward developments and buildings – to enhance the environment for service users, carers, visitors and staff. Works of art can create a welcoming, uplifting space that increases a feeling of wellbeing and promotes a positive experience of care. We strongly advocate original art commissions, sensitivity to aesthetics and the introduction of nature into medical and other healthcare settings.

Articles which need major revision and/or a second round of reviews will require additional time and will be considered for a later issue. We are holistic in approach and believe the arts and humanities have a crucial role to play in medical training, clinician wellbeing and awareness. We believe the arts help us to see and value the patient as a whole person, not just an illness or symptom. We believe the arts will contribute to a culture within health services that is more supportive, empowering, enlightened, personal and humane. We are the leading support sector organisation, advocate and expert for arts and health in London. Through our activities, we work to promote, develop and support the understanding of what the arts can do to contribute to a healthy society, in London and nationally, and by so doing to encourage the use of the arts in settings beyond the mainstream.
