BAPAM (the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine) are opening a new free clinic for performing arts professionals and students in Northern Ireland.
If you make a proportion of your living from, or study in the performing arts, and have a physical or psychological health problem related to your work, BAPAM can help you. BAPAM clinicians can provide an accurate diagnosis and information to help you overcome problems. The BAPAM team can identify the best sources of ongoing care, both in the NHS and from other specialists, and advise you about sources of financial support for people experiencing health problems affecting their ability to work or study.
Taking care of health and wellbeing is a vital part of sustainable arts practice and enables you to give your best performance. BAPAM are delighted to be working with the Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast’s music hub, who will host the clinic, providing vital support for a healthy and vibrant performing arts community.
The clinic is led by Dr Christine Hunter, a BAPAM and NHS GP and Medical Adviser to the Ulster Orchestra.
