How cultural experiences can improve health and wellbeing

Manchester Museums and Galleries Partnership provides creative arts for health programmes for our local community, hospital patients and staff. We work with our collections and a wide range of creative practitioners to improve people’s wellbeing, the patient environment and creative learning opportunities. We develop our programmes in consultation with community health service providers, hospital staff, GPs and patients to help support improvements to the quality of care delivered by health professionals.
