"We are really excited about the possibilities that OOHSCREEN offers us in creating a cost effective rolling programme of exhibitions for our service users to enjoy. It will provide a real assets to our existing exhibitions programme by enhancing the hospital environment."
Katherine Murphy, Chief Executive, The Patients Association
"Improving waiting areas for patients and their families would be an extremely positive development and we wish to support this work as it is a new medium to explain to people aspects of their care
and treatment. The NHS Constitution clearly states that patients should know their rights and responsibilities, and the use of art and creative ways of providing information is always welcome."
Guy Eades, Director Healing Arts, Isle of Wight NHS Trust
"The benefits of art in healthcare settings are well documented, indeed the UK leads the world in this field of healthcare, so we are really excited about the possibilities that OOHSCREEN offers us in creating a cost-effective rolling programme of exhibitions for our service users to enjoy. This innovative project is an ideal, ready-to-go solution for the arts in health arena and I have no hesitation in endorsing it and hope you will consider giving it your fullest support."
Jacqueline Fowler, Chief Executive The British Institute Of Radiography
"This scheme creates a modern environment which has been thoughtfully designed. It directly relates to the service and gives the patient confidence that their feelings and emotions are respected. Importantly, a contemporary environment adds to the wellbeing of the staff who work there, so reducing stress levels for everyone."
Prof. Gary Royle, UCL Medical Radiation Physics, Head of Proton and Advanced RadioTherapy
"Modern technology has a lot to offer and this proposal exploits this to start to usher in a more dynamic clinical environment to improve the patient experience and have a positive all-round impact on both patients and staff. I am a firm believer that the patient environment can play an important role as a distraction but it can even have a role in alleviating pain and improving the treatment outcome. I strongly support your proposal and will be very pleased to participate in your project to explore these areas."
Arts Coordinator, Gloucester Hospitals, NHS Foundation Trust
"Our service users are often bombarded with information - in the form of signs, posters, leaflets, notices, all competing for their attention. OOHSCREEN has the potential to consolidate information into one location and sequence between exhibitions - we hope to explore the full potential of screen communication to ensure we engage and inform effectively and creatively, while helping de-clutter the walls and draw more viewers to the digital exhibitions."
