'How to Make Carbon Pay?'

Making the business case for large scale decarbonisation projects can be challenging. Across the NHS there are many competing priorities, decisions are made in the short-term, and sustainability programmes do not always give a quick financial return. All these challenges are slowing the NHS down in reaching its scope 1 emissions targets. However, this talk demonstrates how strategic capital planning, informed by bottom-up technical data, can help make the business case for Net Zero so that estate decarbonisation projects are prioritised in future investment decisions.

'Benefits of Ongoing Communication and Engagement Between Client Stakeholders and Design Team'

In complex hospital projects with decanting phases, ongoing communication ensures alignment of objectives and priorities, crucial for patient care continuity. Engagement with stakeholders and the design team fosters collaboration, leveraging expertise to proactively address challenges. Integration of new technologies like BIM and cloud-based platforms streamlines workflows and decision-making, enhancing efficiency. Emerging tools such as VR and AR offer innovative visualization, aiding in precise feedback and understanding of design impacts. Ultimately, these practices ensure seamless transitions, optimal outcomes, and meet the unique needs of patients, staff, and administrators.

'Is it Possible to Deliver an Efficient NHS Estate'

Paul invites the audience to consider how they might influence the efficiency drivers in the NHS as it emerges from a pandemic ‘spend culture’ in response to the well-known crisis – returning to a cost cutting austere environment of ongoing budget reduction.
Underpinning the presentation is how he seeks to encourage a culture that avoids ‘Analysis Paralysis’ based on an assumed critique in the quality of the data – focusing on and identifying what can be done, rather than on justifying what can’t.

'Masterplanning a Health Innovation Neighbourhood'

This presentation will introduce the concept behind developing the UK’s first Health Innovation Neighbourhood. The development will transform a former 29-acre general hospital site to create a Health Innovation Neighbourhood; where housing, green spaces, healthcare and educational facilities will sit alongside research and innovation to drive and inform healthier and sustainable living.
The Neighbourhood will provide a real-world testbed by bringing together its research expertise in ageing and health, places and sustainability, data and digital science, and the creative arts to identify and implement solutions that aid healthier and more sustainable living across the life course.
The masterplan includes 350,000sq ft of research and innovation facilities, 100,000sq ft of NHS and other health-related facilities, alongside 1,250 new homes.
