Art For Oncology

Art For Oncology

Two illustrators with very different styles, Liz Myhill and Adrian McMurchie, have had their rough sketches (seen here) put before patients, visitors and staff in the Oncology Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital to ask what they think should go up on the walls of waiting areas, treatment rooms and corridors. The choices were between a flowing natural look with local flora and fauna and art work which illustrated Forth Valley’s history industrial heritage and architecture, or a mixture of both.

After much debate and feedback it was agreed that both styles should be incorporated in different areas of the Unit. The overall aim is to help make the unit look and feel more welcoming, and create a more interesting place for patients who often spend fairly lengthy periods of time undergoing treatment.

Many patients and families are keen to see the improvements, and NHS Forth Valley’s Oncology team hopes to have the works completed before the end of 2018.
