"It just doesn’t feel like I am in hospital, having just a short relief from the television is fantastic"
David*, a patient on the ward
"Many of our patients are facing life changing conditions and challenging treatments at all stages of their lives. Creative activities such as music can help our patients connect with their experiences at a very personal level, and contribute to the promotion of a sense of well being in a way which powerfully complements the treatment and care they are receiving".
Christina Casey - Ward Manager, Chelsea Westminster Hospital
"The sessions encourage social engagement, mobility, psychological enrichment and cognitive stimulation. Patients tell us how much they value it".
Darren Brown - Physiotherapist
"I love to see the happiness it brings people to think about things other than being unwell. It also provides friends and family with a fun and engaging environment".
