Make a difference
With your help, we can keep art at the heart of our NHS Grampian hospitals.
Help us make sure that North East patients, their families and NHS workers continue to benefit from art in hospitals.
Grampian Hospitals Art Trust (GHAT) is a charity that supports the wellbeing of all who need to access care in hospitals and community. We champion the idea that ART IS GOOD FOR YOU and can relieve the stress and anxiety of being in hospital.
Our work helps patients feel cared for, staff feel valued and visitors feel comforted.

Why support Grampian Hospitals Art Trust?
Your support ensures we can deliver art at the bed side and assist the NHS staff who care for them.
With your help we can provide specially trained artists for vulnerable people and create calming and empathic surroundings using fabulous design and specially made art.
Access to the arts whilst in hospital supports quality of life, it brings joy and fun in what can be an anxious time for the whole family.
We are also developing new ways to help people with art in hospitals within our rural communities and for people who are experiencing poor mental health from the isolation and effects of the pandemic.
