Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to Play for Patients at Stobhill Hospital

Friday, March 22, 2019

Music has proven benefits for health and wellbeing and on Tuesday (26th) students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) will play for patients’ enjoyment at Stobhill Hospital. 

The programme of music will feature popular Operatic and Cabaret songs with keyboard accompaniment and there will be refreshments available. 

The RCS is a national and international centre of excellence for performing arts education and the musical programme will play to older adults in Ward C who have suffered a stroke.  

Stephen McDowall-Laing, Senior Charge Nurse Ward C, said:  “We are delighted that some of the students from the RCS have asked if they can come along and play for our patients and hope the patients and their families, visitors and our staff enjoy the performance.  

We hope that anyone coming to the ward will join us in the day room and we will be delighted if they want to sing along." 

Research has shown that music in particular has psychological, physical and biological benefits within healthcare settings as it reduces levels of stress and anxiety.
