A key part of Newcastle Hospitals Charity, our arts programme aims to enhance the wellbeing and recovery of patients and staff across Newcastle Hospitals.
The programme, headed up by our Arts Programme Manager Katie Hickman, supports a range of projects across all mediums, helping to engage patients and communities in the work of the hospitals and support the mental health and wellbeing of NHS staff.
