BAPAM is a specialist healthcare charity giving medical advice to performing arts professionals and students.

If you make a proportion of your living from, or study in the performing arts, and have a health problem related to your work, we can help you.

We currently hold free clinics in London, Glasgow, Cardiff, Birmingham and Leeds.

Our expert clinicians understand the demands of a performing arts career and can help with problems including work-related injuries and pain, tension, voice problems, hypermobility, performance or career-related anxiety and other psychological issues. BAPAM clinicians are from a range of backgrounds including general practice, physiotherapy, psychology, osteopathy, rheumatology, and orthopaedics.

Our clinicians are experienced at dealing with the problems performing arts workers frequently face, and can help with an accurate diagnosis and advice including identifying efficient care pathways, both in the NHS and from other specialist individuals and services. The BAPAM team can also advise about the availability of financial support for people experiencing health problems affecting their ability to work or study.

Please read our Patient Services Contract for more detailed information about your care as a BAPAM patient.
