A powerful partnership

More people than ever visit Greater Manchester’s museums and galleries. Yet they are much more than just enjoyable places to visit. They make a real contribution to health and wellbeing, with recent research suggesting that those who regularly attend actually live longer.

It is for this reason that healthcare professionals frequently join forces with museums and galleries – often with impressive results, whether for patients or healthcare professionals themselves.

But don’t just take our word for it. Download the case studies or read Health and Culture to find out about the ground-breaking partnerships between healthcare and cultural professionals that are already taking place. Check our blog for the latest news, or read about our week-long series of cultural taster sessions that took place across five hospital sites in February.

This website is designed to inform and inspire. We want you to start thinking about culture in a new way, or to contact us to find out how museums and galleries can help you improve the health and wellbeing of the patients in your care.
