Here's where we are making music in 2017.
Great ormond StReet Hospital For Children, London
Pulse Arts Musicians Joe and David have been delivering Music In Healthcare practice at Great Ormond Street since November 2014 as part of GOSH Arts, the innovative and award winning arts programme based at the hospital.
Pulse Arts are currently composing lullabies with patients and hospital staff from all departments, including a singing porter, a bass playing staff nurse and we hope...some singing ICU Nurses! They will become part of the Lullaby Factory, a permanent installation in the Lagoon hospital cafeteria, More information to follow soon!
We work across many areas of the hospital including outpatients, intensive care units and pre and post surgical wards.
Broomfield Hospital, Essex
Pulse Arts are making music on the Children's Burns ward, as well as the ENT Outpatient ward, Phoenix Ward, Wizard surgical Ward, Children's A&E and the Intensive Care Unit. Since December 2016 Pulse Arts have been making music on adult and care of the elderly wards: Baddow, Braxsted, Lister and Goldhanger. This is thanks to a fantastic partnership with Broomfield Patient Experience Department and support from The Friends of Broomfield.
Our work at Broomfield Hospital is kindly funded by the Friends of Broomfield Hospital and Essex Music Education Hub with support from The Funding Network.
Evelina London Children's Hospital, London
Pulse Arts has been delivering regular sessions at the Evelina since February 2016. We are thrilled to work in close partnership with the Breathe Arts Programme, who do so much work to enrich the hospital environment at Guy's and St Thomas'. We are working on Mountain and Savannah Wards, PICU and the Pediatric Dentistry Ward.
This new initiative is supported by Breathe Arts Health and Research and BBC Children in Need.
