Written Portraits: A poetry performance and discussion


Patient Experience Research Centre

Imperial College London

On the 23rd May 2022, members of Imperial College and Goldsmiths University of London came together for a poetry performance and discussion as part of the People Like You project which is exploring perceptions around personalised medicine.

During the online session they were joined by Di Sherlock, a poet who is been undertaking a residency at Charing Cross Hospital and Maggie's Centre West in London. 'Written Portraits' is a collection of poems by Di which are drawn from patients and staff she met throughout her residency.

In the above video you will have a chance to hear some of the poems which are part of the 'Written Portraits' collection as well as a discussion with Di and members of the research team.
