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.

This APPG inquiry into existing engagement of the arts in health and social care was made to make recommendations to improve policy and practice. A lot of arts in health work happens at grass roots levels, in community based programmes that address both clinical and social determinants of health. Our aim is to provide a proactive national alliance, which will offer strong networking and advocacy to increase public awareness and understanding of the role of arts in health nationally and internationally. We will encourage best quality practice, shared ethics, research and evaluation, excellence in process and product, while celebrating and supporting the passion and drive of the many arts in health activities which make a difference. London Arts and Health supports artists and health professionals across the whole of London and beyond, promoting excellence and engagement in the field of arts and wellbeing, and extending the reach of the arts to communities and individuals. Many people are excluded from mainstream arts opportunities, yet it is often these people whose health and wellbeing could be most enhanced through such engagement.
