The National Centre for Creative Health launches in the UK on 9 March 2021. NCCH has been formed in response to the Creative Health report, the result of a two-year inquiry led by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing.
The Centre will play a pivotal role in enabling creative health approaches to become integral to health and social care and wider systems. NCCH priorities are: health inequalities; advancing good practice and research; informing policy; and promoting collaboration.
In partnership with NHS England, the Centre will work with Integrated Care Systems to explore models for integrating creative health at a systems level through a programme of ‘Hubs’ in Gloucestershire, West Yorkshire and Harrogate, Suffolk and North East Essex, and Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
An online launch is taking place on 9 March 2021. Guest speakers and NCCH trustees will discuss how the arts, culture and creativity can support people and organisations in the context of the pandemic and increasing health inequalities. NCCH will consider the future role of the National Centre for Creative Health and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
