"Health Humanities provides a very valuable survey of the ways in which arts and humanities have historically contributed in the improvement of healthcare practices both in the UK and throughout the world. As a manifesto calling for the expansion of a new discipline, it clearly highlights unexplored areas of interest for future academic studies as well as potential spaces of engagement for healthcare practitioners interested in potential new approaches to health and care." (Mathieu Donner, The British Society for Literature and Science, bsls.ac.uk, July, 2017)
