Speakers at Live hbf 2021

‘How to get the best out of clinical teams in the design process’

Alison Cann & Fiona Halstead, Clinical Compliance Specialist Nurses, Barts Health NHS Trust

Project teams often complain that clinicians are hard work – that they change their mind, don’t understand the process etc.   Sounds familiar?

We’re here to guide you through – a virtual ‘how to’ guide for working with health care staff.

‘Designing for Dementia with Creativity and Compassion’

Alison Cann, Clinical Compliance Specialist Nurse & Jessica Shiel, Vital Arts Manager, Barts Health NHS Trust

When designing clinical environments there is a great deal of miscommunication regarding what is appropriate for dementia patients. A focus on merely ‘ticking boxes’ can lead to poorly considered spaces which in turn, can negatively impact patient satisfaction, and make time spent in hospital less positive. We would like to advocate for an approach to dementia design which does not infantilise this patient group but empower them.

‘Digital Estates – Delivering Objectives’

Karl Redmond, Strategic Estates Lead, NHS Estates

Digital Estates – supporting the call for care closer to home on a place-based level within ICS thinking. What can we learn from others, who might be spearheading new approaches and innovative ways of working? A high-level over-view of the ‘art of the achievable’ regarding New & Existing NHS physical assets and the technology / data needed to monitor; measure; manage and improve key target areas, utilising digital innovations and key principles in implementation.

‘‘Our Homes Within A Park’ – Proactive Delivery of the Health and Wellbeing Agenda in partnership with Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust’’

Paul Holt MCIOB, MBA, Director (Healthcare/Public Sector), MAC Construction Consultants

We present a dynamic investment strategy on behalf of our Client Step Places and their partners Alder Hey hospital. We explain how third party investment offers modern staff/patient accommodation/homes complimenting the Trusts ‘Hospital in the Park’ concept.

‘Standardised Hospital Design: Intelligent Hospitals’

Paul Sheldon, Principal Consultant Healthcare Planner, Archus Ltd

The Intelligent Hospitals Guidance is a set of four documents commissioned by NHS England in support of the New Hospitals Programme (formerly HIP). Document 2 – ‘Delivering Standardisation of Design and Healthcare Planning’ looks to provide a framework for development that focuses on standardisation across the whole hospital environment and within key departments. It is not a ‘one size fits all’ template, but a kit of parts approach to assembling a hospital from a set of standard elements that can be identified as rooms, clusters, zones and floorplates, using standardised room layouts that can be repeated into clusters, that can then be repeated to form departments, and so on.
