Therapeutic Recreation Service

The Therapeutic Recreation Service at NRH, as part of patients’ personalised rehabilitation programme, promotes the person’s development by encouraging independence through the engagement of leisure activities.

  • Monthly Cinema Night
  • Various themed Music Weeks
  • Art Therapy
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Choir nights
  • Photography Class and Competition
  • Relaxation Group

This service is co-ordinated and facilitated by the Therapeutic Recreation Specialist.
