I am hugely excited about working in partnership with the team at Platt Hall for the benefit of our patients and our communities. We recognise that we need to support our patients in different ways. We recognise the powerful impact that art can have on well-being and our hope is that through joint working we will help people to stay well, recover faster, manage long-term conditions and experience a better quality of life.
We have already been privileged to hear moving personal accounts from local residents who have experienced improvements in their own health and well-being from engagement with the Hall. Public spaces like this one play a vital role in the life of our patients and we want play a part in re-connecting Platt Hall with its local vibrant communities, creating a space both inside and out that makes everyone feel welcome.
Platt Hall will provide opportunities for engagement, for reflection, for connection, to learn about each other, opportunities to meet and to create much needed local attachments. We hope that our partnership work will add to the evolving evidence on arts, health well-being and that it will help to develop the case that is already being made, that we should support people to create their own health.”
