Supporting Creative Health in the South East

22nd February | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The National Centre for Creative Health is inviting you to join us for a regional Creative Health event focusing on supporting effective creative health partnerships in the South East.

Supporting Creative Health in the South East on Thursday 22nd February at 12:30 – 1400 GMT


The session will be an opportunity to network with others in your region and Integrated Care Systems, as well as a chance to hear more about the recently launched Creative Health Review, and new resources such as the Creative Health Toolkit.

This event is hosted by the National Centre for Creative Health Associates Programme. This Programme, funded by Arts Council England, aims to deliver a step change in delivering creative health across England, through knowledge exchange and relationship development. There is a Creative Health Associate in each NHS England Region, hosted by an Integrated Care Board.

The Creative Health Associate for the South East is Esther Watts, hosted by NHS Sussex ICB.

This event is aimed at those in the locality of the South East working within the NHS, Integrated Care Systems, and Local Authorities.



The session will be held in Microsoft Teams.

• Sensory needs: e.g. subtitles, audio description, translation

About the National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH)

NCCH aims to advance good practice and research, inform policy and promote collaboration, helping to foster the conditions for creative health to be integral to health and social care and wider systems. It was set up in response to Recommendation 1 in the APPG AHW report: Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing and became a registered charity in 2020.

About the Creative Health Review

NCCH and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing Creative Health Review report offers a set of recommendations on how policy can embrace creative health. This landmark report evidences how creative health can form an integral part of a health and social care system aimed at reducing health inequalities and building social capital. https://ncch.org.uk/creative-health-review


About the Creative Health Toolkit

NCCH has worked in partnership with NHS England Personalised Care Team and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in Gloucestershire; Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin; Suffolk and North East Essex; and West Yorkshire, to develop this toolkit to support other ICSs to embed creative health in their systems. The toolkit considers the enablers and barriers and illustrates how systems can deliver against the forthcoming NHS England Maturity Matrix for Social Prescribing, with reference to five domains: Leadership, Strategy & Governance; Planning & Commissioning; Workforce Development; Digital & Technology; and Evidence & Impact. https://www.creativehealthtoolkit.org.uk/
