See how we make a difference to patients:
Our arts in health programme – which combines digital, visual and performing arts with innovative design – aims to transform the hospital experience and environment for patients and staff.
Our grants programme awards funding to hospital staff for projects which will help them to deliver better patient experience and care. Learn more about the projects we have funded, and how to apply.
We have partnered with Saatchi Gallery to present a first-of-its-kind ‘Arts in Health’ exhibition.

The exhibition is free to visit and is open from 24 November to 13 January 2022. Find out more here.
