Enhance your healthcare
environment with art

Public access to our valuable collection:
  • Enhances the ambience of hospitals and healthcare centres to contribute to a more positive experience for patients, visitors and staff
  • Reduces negative emotions including stress, anxiety and depression in patients
  • Distracts patients from worrying about their illness or treatment
  • Helps patients feel valued and helps to maintain a sense of dignity
  • Builds social interaction and improves self-esteem

Cost of the artwork
rental service

Fundraising is vital so we can subsidise our artwork rental service. As a result our rental fees are surprisingly affordable enabling you to invest long term in the enhancement of your healthcare facility for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff.

To help with your budgeting, typically it costs only £45 per artwork per annum.

Whilst our visitors are sitting in the reception, we often talk about the painting that hangs there. They are always interested in talking about the artwork and it helps to calm them down whilst they wait for their appointment. Feedback from receptionist, VOCAL (Voice of Carers Across Lothian)
