Obstetric Theatre ceiling

Molly pictured with mobile and ceiling tiles installedPrinted ceiling tiles with an eye-catching design created by ArtCare volunteer Molly, are providing a welcome focal point for patients in the Obstetric Theatre and the Gynaecology department. The artworks include different types of birds hidden amongst the blossom, providing a visual distraction for women having caesarean sections or other treatment. The challenge to patients is to see if they can find and name all the various birds. The addition of a mobile hanging below the ceiling tiles in Gynaecology, also helps to instil a feeling of calm, with its gently spinning action. Following the installation, Obstetric Theatre Sister commented , “All of the patients I have had in theatre this week have enjoyed and admired it.”

Cardiac Care Suite

The pictures around the Cardiac Care Unit are inspired by the book ‘Salisbury in Detail’ produced and published by Salisbury Civic Society. The book contains over 500 colour photographs of parts of buildings, and of related artefacts in the spaces between buildings. Its aim is to present a portrait of Salisbury by a slightly unconventional means, focusing on the individual details, which then together create the city. The book is available to purchase from the Salisbury Civic Society
