NHS Lothian provides a comprehensive range of primary, community-based and acute hospital services for the second largest residential population in Scotland.

We believe creativity, arts and design should be woven into all our work as there is good evidence that these have a positive effect on wellbeing and health.

Johnny Johnstone has said "My [works] seem to be expressing something, either serious or amusing about life. They depict people acting out minor dramas. Gesture, composition, characterisation and setting are important. There is an element of gravity in them, but the humorous side probably eclipses that aspect."

Johnny Johnstone was born in 1941. He studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee from 1959 to 1964, and later was a lecturer there for many years. He is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Scottish Society of Artists, and is a professional member of the Scottish Society of Artists and Visual Arts Scotland.
