How do we help artists & creators?
Our 2015 Annual Review is now published. Read it here.
Like athletes, performing artists need to be as healthy as possible, yet are constantly at risk of injury and illness. In some ways performers are more vulnerable – risking muscle damage, hearing difficulties, voice loss, severe stress and anxiety. Yet unlike sportspeople, their health problems are largely unrecognised, so that if they get sick, they struggle to find health practitioners who really understand their needs.
BAPAM has been helping performers since 1984. We have in-depth understanding of their work-related health problems. We also appreciate the financial and other career pressures they are under. Our services are unique, essential and irreplaceable – they save careers and enable Britain to maintain its top class performing arts scene.
It is excellent to receive such an expert service, especially as I am a musician of limited financial ability. I have been strongly reassured and leave here very happy that I can keep playing
I have used your services before and always had a good experience. I was remembered by the staff and felt so welcomed back. I have only great things to say about BAPAM. It’s such a valuable service to professionals
The clinician was very warm and knowledgeable about how my condition relates to the wideranging demands of my work as a community musician. Lots of time and consideration given to ensure I understand the nature of my difficulties and the steps I should take to resolve them
