Arts activities

Our arts activity aims to enhance our patient experience to improve health and wellbeing. By supporting our patients to participate in arts activities, we can help to relieve boredom, improve mood, and reduce stress and anxiety. Find out about some of the activity below.

Arts activity packs

Supported by the Patient Experience team, we are providing art activity packs for inpatients, which give them the chance to have a go at some creative activities. They include coloured pencils and pens, and sketch books. We also have an additional limited supply of mini paint sets and pastels which can be specially requested. Each of the packs is individually sealed for single patient use.

To complement the activity packs, we have included Boredom Buster newspapers. The tabloid-size newspaper contains a range of stimulating activities, including puzzles, poetry, songs and ideas for creative writing, alongside factual articles.

If you would like to order a pack for an inpatient, please contact The Patient Experience Team via
