The purpose of the Inquiry is to develop policy recommendations and inform a vision for political leadership in the field of arts, health and wellbeing. The breadth and diversity of the collection as well as the historical significance of many of the artefacts make the collection a unique resource to transform the healthcare environment for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors.

Aesop, the NHS Alliance and College of Medicine presented the first national Arts in health Conference & Showcase for health decision-makers at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Friday 5 February 2016. Creative areas explored include music, theatre, dance, visual arts, literary arts, and interdisciplinary arts.
The arts can make a powerful contribution to increasing the health and wellbeing of older people and those living with chronic conditions, through strengthening social networks and physical and creative activity. In this unit you will learn about the potential health benefits of visual arts, journaling, music and voice, dance and movement, drama and performance, story writing and poetry and therapeutic environments. This framework is an important step in ensuring we both encourage innovation in NSW, and also support local health services and The Arts sector to work together.
In November 2015 the NSW Minister for Health announced a Taskforce on Health and The Arts to provide advice on how to both encourage and better integrate The Arts into healthcare services, activities and facilities across the whole of NSW Health. There is a growing and rich body of literature, music and fine arts by, for and about people in the health professions.
