Art, Heritage & Design Commissions

Art and Design in the built environment has and will always remain core to the organisation’s business objectives. The Arts Team plays a vital role in a number of on-going capital projects across the hospital.

We strive for an inclusive approach encouraging stakeholders to try new ideas, discuss problems and solutions so in turn they can co-design their own healthcare environments through meaningful participation.
