The Bigger Picture Collaboration

Improving health professional wellbeing and patient care by providing a wider perspective including the arts and humanities. Key to this is connecting and working together with other organisations. We focus on five key themes:

  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Creativity
  • Curiosity
  • Contemplation

These are being explored through inspiring talks and events, festivals and exhibitions. We also give health professionals opportunities to develop, showcase and celebrate their creative talent, for example in the poetry anthology.

‘In these times of increasing workload stress, professional isolation and digitalisation we need now, more than ever, to remember the human narrative in medicine if we want to retain compassionate practice, practice person-centred care, and sustain our own wellbeing by remembering why it is that we do what we do.’

Dr Carey Lunan, Chair RCGP Scotland
