What People Say..

Healthcare Staff

The arts service is a vital non medical part of recovery and treatment for our cancer patients… The staff within the department value and acknowledge the vital contribution the arts team make to cancer services at NCCC.

I feel that the project is a very valuable contribution towards our patient care. Cancer is a terrifying diagnosis to many and the option to work gently with your hands at various crafts does lessen the stress as well as passing long periods of time in the company of the arts team.
Communication is certainly not just a by product of the craft work. I have often witnessed vulnerable patients being comforted by the team and others enjoying a chat.
