New BAPAM Performing Arts Medicine Clinic in Cambridge

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Are you (or do you know) a performing arts professional or student with a work-related health problem?

Held monthly at West Road Concert Hall, one of the city’s premiere music venues, our new clinic in Cambridge is now taking bookings.

We’re delighted to be working with Dr Trish Halliwell, NHS GP and a graduate of the BAPAM/University College London MSc in Performing Arts Medicine.

BAPAM is a unique non-profit healthcare organisation supporting individual performing arts professionals and providing broader education and training. Our clinicians give free, confidential health advice focused on the unique challenges faced throughout a career in the performing arts, including during education and training. We help our patients manage their health and performance practice, including accessing appropriate care in their local NHS and referral to specialist practitioners.

Performing arts professionals work in a competitive, highly skilled and often poorly paid industry. Behind the scenes, the physical and psychological pressure can be tough, and many people experience health problems or injuries affecting their ability to work. Access to expert health advice and support can be crucial for long term wellbeing throughout such a demanding career.

Raising Money for the Spinal Injuries Association – Sarah Upjohn

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Sarah Upjohn is raising money for the Spinal Injuries Association. She is one of 147 Cambridge musicians who started learning a completely new instrument on Jan 3rd. She explains:

On January 3rd I am taking up the flute, and on Feb 27th (eight short weeks later) I am sitting the Grade 1 exam. This ‘grade-one-a-thon’ is being organised by musicians around Cambridge, and we are raising money for the Spinal Injuries Association…….a cause close to our hearts, and in the front of our minds, as one of our local french horn players sustained a spinal cord injury earlier this year while doing a spot of DIY.

Sarah is the physiotherapist at the Purcell School, and she is also on the BAPAM directory, treating performing artists in the Cambridge area.

On February 27th the combined talents of the 147 musicians will be unleashed on an unprepared public in a Grade 1 orchestra concert: ‘Clueless in Concert’.
