  • It provides a forum for publication and debate of arts in health care and health promotion.

Arts and musical activities for health have been explored in contexts including treatment of acute and long-term conditions, health prevention, health literacy, and health promotion. In our current political and economic climate, which is forcing a reassessment of human priorities, and where wellbeing is a declared government priority, arts in health offer a professional, value-for-money contribution to mainstream health care. They can contribute to shortening the length of hospital stay, reduce patient medication and lower reliance on GP consultation.
