ArtCare is the arts in health service for Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust. The ArtCare team brings colour and inspiration to the Trust by delivering a quality arts programme, which is accepted as a vital element to the healing process. ArtCare achieves this by:

  • organising temporary exhibitions and acquiring permanent artworks for display around the hospital site
  • organising visual, performing and participatory arts activities to inspire staff, patients and visitors to the hospital
  • advising on interior design in the hospital

Arts in health is widely recognised as a valuable asset to the quality of care provided in hospitals. In all its activities ArtCare is looking to reinforce the link between the arts and healthcare and to raise awareness of the importance of a creative hospital environment to patient and staff well-being.

ArtCare celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016 and to date has successfully completed over 500 creative projects. A summary of many of our completed projects can be found on our project pages. Our services page details the range of projects we can offer within the hospital, as well as in the wider community and through Service Level Agreements with other health care settings.

Thank you Penny, this is really useful, and great that you encourage artists to join your mailing list.  It is encouraging to see the work that you do.
