New Art in Ophthalmology

New Artworks for The Royal Gwent Hospital


2022 has seen three new commissions for departments in the ABUHB Royal Gwent Hospital made possible through NHS Charities Environmental Improvement funding and internal Arts in Health discretionary funding (Planning).


Each team wanted to enhance their environment for their patients and staff with artwork that was site specific, and the artists involved worked with each team to respond to their ideas whilst bringing their own creativity to the projects.

Welsh illustrator and printmaker Rhi Moxon created a series of screen-printed works inspired by local landmarks, the geography of the ABUHB area and elements of visual imagery used in Orthoptic diagnosis. The suite of hand-made screen prints are permanently on display in E Block and were well-received by staff in the department.
