Painting in Hospitals

Princess Royal University Hospital in Orpington

Paintings in Hospitals supports the lives of many thousands of people each year by bringing interest, warmth and colour into clincial environments which otherwise might appear cold and sterile.  The Arts Council Collection has made nearly 100 works of art available to Paintings in Hospitals bringing a new selection of work by contemporary artists into the healthcare system.  Hospitals wishing to borrow from the Collection should in the first instance contact Painting in Hospitals.
