Patients' Activities

Patients' Activities

We offer a wide variety of activities, which include: 


Our Art Facilitator and volunteers work one-to-one with each person to maximise their independence and opportunities to participate. Activities are planned so that all patients can take part in the group. 

Live music 

Visiting musicians from the charity Music in Hospitals perform a wide variety of musical styles. Music often promotes some very positive responses. 


Quizzes have many therapeutic benefits including maintaining/improving responsiveness, attention and concentration; using long term memory; enhancement of mood and encouraging team work.


The gardening group grows a magnificent display of vegetables and plants. We work together to plan what we are going to grow, sow seeds, prick-out seedlings and pot on.


The cooking group meet on a Tuesday afternoon and make cakes, savouries or biscuits to be enjoyed by everyone.

Patient outings

There are many leisure facilities including shops, cafes, garden centres, theatres, cinemas and accessible scenic viewing points within a short drive of the Hospital.  

Day trips to the seaside

A specially adapted holiday cottage in Selsey is available for day trips during the first week of each month from April to October. At other times, the bungalow is available for use by families or organisations.
