Abstract

In 2007, the Arts Council England advocated for the enhanced use of art programmes as a means to address health and well-being. As such the National Health Service (NHS) was encouraged to further engage with art based offerings for patients (Arts Council England, 2007). In response to this call for action NHS Gloucestershire worked in conjunction with Artlift to develop an art on referral scheme. This is an intervention where health primary care providers and professionals refer patients for an 8-10 week art programme, usually delivered in a community based or primary care setting. Artlift is a registered independent charity and charitable incorporated organisation (registered charity # 1151580). Based upon Artlift’s established programme reputation (2008-present) and evaluated health outcomes in Gloucestershire (Crone et al., 2011; 2012a; 2012b), Artlift is seeking to further develop locations for delivery of the arts based on prescription patient referral programme. A joint venture with NHS Wiltshire Council has been established to model Artlift Gloucestershire’s based programming in three GP residencies, with Whiteparish Surgery serving as the pilot location for evaluation. It is considered that acquiring evidence concerning the implementation of Artlift in different locations will assist in further understanding the process of ‘setting up’ and developing an Artlift model for larger scale programme roll-out.
