NHS Lothian Charity: Green Health and Tonic Arts Network Event 2024

We are delighted to invite members of our Green Health and Tonic Arts networks to our combined Green Health and Tonic Arts Network event, looking at how we use arts and greenspace to improve wellbeing in hospitals and health care settings across Lothian.

This in person event is free to attend and will be at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, with a welcome to set the scene for the afternoon and some lunch – which will be provided.
