The Arts in Health Service supports The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust’s vision to strive continuously to improve patients’ experience and outcomes. Some students may already hold qualifications in art or drama therapy, may be practicing artists, or may work elsewhere in mental health; for them, the course offersan opportunity to reinvigorate their work, expand their knowledge base, and meet a variety of other professionals working in related fields.
