Arts on Wards at Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Ward 15 for Older People
Arts Connect is currently working with a hospital team to refurbish the Older People’s Ward to make it more accessible to people with dementia.
This includes planning a new colour scheme and signage which will help patients find their way around, new seating areas and a relaxing new Day Room.
Arts Connect has provided framed photographs of local landscapes in four seasons for patient bays and bedrooms. Many of these were donated by local photographers who took part in a previous Arts project ‘Green Chain Captured’ featuring views along the Green Chain walk which passes through the borough of Greenwich. The photographs are changed every three months to herald the new season.
‘A Lighter Note’ music and singing programme
Patients who are in hospital for many weeks really appreciate a break in their routine with visits by musicians and perhaps an opportunity to lift their spirits by singing along to some well-known tunes. If you are a musician aged over 18 and able to play to a professional standard, please check the Opportunities page for details of current opportunities for musicians.
