GHAT has been involved in arts projects across NHS Grampian for the last 30 years, from our collection of original artwork on the walls you can see as you walk through your hospital to specially commissioned work for places such as the Royal Aberdeen Childrens' Hospital, Royal Cornhill Hospital and Aberdeen Dental School.
In recent years GHAT has set up Artroom projects in Woodend Hospital and Roxburghe House and has built The Suttie Arts Space at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, which will be opened later this year.
GHAT's work is recognised by NHS Grampian as an important element of our high-quality healthcare environment. Feedback from staff, visitors and patients reflect the positive outcomes we seek, with many commenting on how our work creates a distinctive tone to our local hospitals and clinics. It is our dream to help create a welcoming healing environment for all who come to NHS Grampian hospitals regardless of age or medical condition.
Please join us to assure the success of all our projects
