Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity is relaunching its popular tours of the art treasures that can be found in the hospital.

The hospital’s visual and performing arts programme is funded and run by the Charity.

Volunteer Linda White will conduct monthly tours of the art which will be free and open to everyone – but which may be of particular interest to Foundation Trust members and staff who are new to the hospital.

Previously, these tours proved very popular with healthcare professionals visiting the hospital, architects, art groups and the general public at large. The tours also serve as an excellent induction for new staff, helping with orientation and art appreciation.

Each tour will last approximately 45 minutes and can be booked by contacting Hospital Arts on 020 3315 6617 (internal x56617) or arts@chelwest.nhs.uk.

Date: Saturday May 10
Time: 12 noon
Meeting Point: Fish tank, ground floor

Monthly Tours

A Hospital Arts information pack will be provided for everyone going on the tours including a copy of Trust News, the ‘What’s in a Name’ booklet which contains fascinating facts about the origin of names of wards and departments, Hospital Arts and Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity publicity materials.
