Sound and Music


Music systems around our hospitals

Listening to music has been shown to reduce patient anxiety in a variety of hospital settings, providing an enjoyable distraction and masking unwanted noise. We have funded a wide range of sound systems throughout the hospital, from small Bluetooth speakers for music playback in operating theatres, to the large network of ceiling speakers that runs throughout the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Emergency Department.

We have also compiled bespoke playlists of music for use with these sound systems, including sections of classical music, jazz, and contemporary ambient music. Some examples of these playlists can be found below.
