BAPAM Performing Artist GP Clinics

Performing Arts Medicine Web

To book an appointment call 0207 404 588 to talk to one of the BAPAM team, register and book for free.

The British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) is the largest provider of career-specific healthcare for performers in the UK. They are running a new monthly clinic with Dr. Melanie Grundy.

Please note, in light of the current public health situation, consultations with Dr Grundy will take place via phone or video call rather than in person. Please register and BAPAM will confirm arrangements.

Who is the clinic for?
If you make a proportion of your living from, or study in the performing arts, and have a physical or psychological health problem related to your work, BAPAM can help you. BAPAM clinicians can provide an accurate diagnosis and information to help you overcome problems. The BAPAM team can identify the best sources of ongoing care, both in the NHS and from other specialists, and advise you about sources of financial support for people experiencing health problems affecting their ability to work or study.

Who will I be seeing?
Dr Grundy is a BAPAM and NHS GP with special interests in mental health/wellbeing, gender dysphoria and performers’ health. Prior to studying medicine, she was self-employed in the arts so has personal experience of some of the challenges that brings. Outside her clinical work, Melanie remains involved with the creative sphere as Trustee/Secretary of music promoter Jazz North East and performing as one half of the voice & piano duo Alembic. The clinical and creative come together in her roles as Trustee of Help Musicians UK and as an assessing clinician and trainer for BAPAM.
