“I think the art work all around the hospital is great. I have been here as a patient all day and the art work has cheered me up.”

“Made special detour en route to Bath – always love to see diverse exhibitions that really brighten otherwise dull, long corridors.”

“My hospital appointments are pretty miserable but @artatruh brightens them considerably! The value of art should not be underestimated.”

Patient

“My husband is a patient here and I have been so impressed with the activities in the dayroom. Patients have fun and become friends while learning crafts and enjoying afternoon teas and music. What a splendid idea!”

Family Member

“What a brilliant and amazing newsletter – there looks to be lots of fabulous things to look forward to. Thanks to everyone, we are very lucky here at the RUH to have all this loveliness to feast our eyes and ears on!”

Staff Member

“This hospital is inspirational in how it has embraced art as a partner to healthcare. Both the artworks on display inside and out, together with the gardens have created an environment conclusive to recovery.”

Visitor

“My daughter came in for a blood test which she has regularly. She has developed a strong fear of having the tests. Today was very different because we came and worked with Edwina first. Martha was relaxed and enjoyed exploring the materials and making a scene with characters and scenery. She turned it into a computer game! The blood test was quicker and easier than it’s been for months and she recovered quickly. She was very keen to return to working with Edwina and playing with her creation. The whole process was much more relaxing for us as parents too.”

Parent

“A programme that shows the hospital in a good light is of benefit to the hospital.”

Staff Member

“I have been working at the RUH for the past few months and it’s been a pleasure to look at the art work around the hospital – I feel very lucky walking to work through an ‘art gallery’ at the start and end of a shift, there is something very soothing about it! It’s also a great distraction!”

Staff Member

“We visited the hospital at the weekend in connection with a visit to the MRI unit. At a stressful time it was really lovely to be greeted by the fantastic art on the bottom corridor. On the way out we took some time to have a good look at it.

Well done!”
