Cancer Environments

A long-standing relationship with Macmillan Cancer Environments and our work across a number of oncology projects means that we are sensitive to the particular needs of people affected by cancer.

Stress, disorientation and confusion, fear and anxiety may be alleviated by the appropriate use of art to welcome and reassure, support way finding, convey quality of care, and create a homely and friendly atmosphere.
