At Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, we recognise the importance of the creative arts.

The arts can, and do, have a hugely positive effect, improving the lives and the experiences of patients, service users, carers, visitors and staff, as well as those who work in the arts themselves.

We’re a small but dedicated team of artists and art enthusiasts at Cardiff and Vale UHB, all of whom are passionate about continuing to develop the health board’s art offering.

Our work is based on a growing body of evidence that shows art can have a hugely positive impact on the lives of our patients and is enabled by our collaborators as well as support from the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity

“We grow better tomorrows when we plant good seeds today.”
