The UCLH Sarcoma Unit is now offering creative sessions for patients undergoing treatment.

What's this about?

We are offering creative sessions as an opportunity to try something different and to help you find ways to express your experiences in whatever way you choose. You do not need to be artistic or any particular age!

What does a creative session involve?

Sessions are an opportunity to chat, relax and become absorbed. If you are interested then our artist-in-residence, Lizzie Burns, can visit you at your bed with arts materials at a convenient time. She has many years experience and patients have found creative sessions a really positive and rewarding experience.

What will happen to your work?

You can keep your creation. Providing you give your consent we would like record your creations and quotes and we will ask you to consider contributing to a lasting archive or book so you can share your experiences with other patients.

How do I get involved?

Lizzie Burns is visiting UCLH once a week. If you would like to book a session speak to your Doctor, Clinical Nurse Specialist or any member of the Sarcoma Team or e-mail

Please note: Creative sessions have been made possible thanks to charitable donations from Cancer Care and the UCLH Sarcoma Development Fund.

"I found the concept that creativity can be developed enlightening and that has given me a sense of freedom."
