We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of exceptional art.

At Paintings in Hospitals, we use art to inspire better health and wellbeing for patients, carers and communities across the UK.

We know art can help us stay well, aid our recovery, and support us to live longer, healthier lives.

Paintings in Hospitals is the UK's leading national arts-in-health charity with 60 years of experience. We are dedicated to bringing art to everyone through our artwork loans and art activities in all types of healthcare and social care.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

World Health Organisation, 1948

We work in partnership with patients and carers to transform cold, clinical environments into something more human. Rather than prescribing art, we empower patients and carers with the skills and voice to make their own decisions. By working together, we can create care spaces that encourage and enrich the lives of everyone.
