As a practice we embrace holistic care and we are keen to use art as a way of keeping well.
The health development nurse and an artist run this inclusive group every Thursday 1.30pm-3.30pm. The group supports people of all abilities and needs including people with mental or physical health issues and learning disabilities.
It is well documented that art benefits people in the field of mental health and we have experienced how uplifting and beneficial the art and group has been first hand for patients health and wellbeing.
