A cross-party group of AMs is examining the case for increasing the role of the arts in helping to treat some health conditions.
Chairwoman Eluned Morgan has written to the cabinet secretaries for health and the economy to ask them to commission ACW to undertake new research in this area.
“There’s a lot of evidence already that proves that popping pills into people’s mouths is not always the best solution to their health problems, that actually their well-being needs to be looked after,” said Baroness Morgan.
“We need to be looking at transferring that funding. But you can’t do that without a really strong evidence base. Some of that evidence base exists, we need to pull that together and make sure it is adapted to the Welsh situation.”
