Last night was an amazing night for Wishing Well – we were a finalist at the HSJ awards!!! It was wonderful to receive this recognition of the amazing partnership that we’ve developed with The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital over the past 6 years.
Being a finalist in this prestigious awards, and having our work recognised on a national level is a huge honor. We would like to congratulate all of last nights finalists and winners!
We are delighted to have our work featured in Brighton and Hove County Council’s ‘The Art of Good Health’ report. The report highlights the positive impact that being involved in the arts can have on health and wellbeing from cradle to grave. The report demonstrates that the arts can be delivered in almost any setting, including hospitals.
The report features our work at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital. Our trained music leaders go onto the wards three times a week, bringing acoustic instruments and music technology right to children’s bedsides. The interactions provide vital stimulation to help them develop, distracts from uncomfortable procedures, and creates a sense of community between children, families, and hospital staff. You can read our case study in the report here.
