Vital Arts, the arts programme for Barts & The London NHS Trust commissioned Field Arts Projects and Highwood Research to undertake a research study of staff and patients at the West Wing. The staff and patient research findings were intended to provide a comprehensive understanding of the impact of the West Wing’s environment and artworks on the provision of breast care services at Barts and the London NHS Trust.
The main research objective was to determine how, if at all, environment affects personal and professional wellbeing in the delivery of healthcare.
