Arts in Health

Salford NHS Health & Social Care Centres  

Tim Ward of Circling the Square developed a strategy for the inclusion of public art within four new build NHS Health & Social Care Centres for Salford. These LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) projects are to be located in Eccles, Pendleton, Swinton and Walkden. All the new centres will house GP surgeries, City Council 'One Stop Shops', libraries, health services and community space.    


Mid Essex NHS Broomfield Hospital Arts Project 

Tim Ward was the arts project manager for this major arts strategy at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex. The aim of the strategy is to contribute to the overall mission of this NHS Trust to "become a premier provider of excellent and progressive healthcare" by integrating high quality art into the internal and external design of the buildings and grounds of the new hospital site and into existing hospital spaces. Enhancing the environment of the whole hospital for the benefit of everyone who uses it (patients, visitors and staff), and creating a strong sense of identity and ownership.

Artists commissioned on the Broomfield Hospital Project were:
