Dying Matters Exhbition


During May 2019 South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust took a free loan of Westhill’s exhibition ‘Bald Statements’ which was displayed in The Health and Wellbeing Café of Stratford Hospital as part of their Dying Matters week.

The hospital held a launch event for invited senior members of the South Warwickshire NHS Trust and alongside the exhibition there was a ‘market place’ with information relevant to the theme to raise awareness of support and services available locally regarding ‘Dying Matters’. In addition there was a Tree of Remembrance which people were able to attach messages to.

The main aim of the exhibition was to encourage conversation related to making advance plans for palliative and end of life care. The sculptures generated an incredible amount of discussion both with staff based at the hospital and the public attending appointments.  Organisers at the hospital reported that the exhibition definitely met their objectives.

The exhibition, Bald Statements, is available on free loan from Westhill. There are two collections, the large alabaster sculptures, and the small hand-sized bronze-resin collection. They are available together or separately.

Staff at South Warwickshire NHS Trust reported that the information provided was very useful and that “the organisation, delivery and contact with Westhill was extremely efficient and professional, it made hosting the exhibition very easy.”
