Headline sponsors: Architects for Health
We are delighted to be headline sponsors for Architects for Health (AfH), sponsoring the BUILD thought-leadership stream, which focusses on how to create sustainable healthcare construction.
Kick-starting the stream on 26th April, Health Spaces will join AfH to discuss the latest thinking in healthcare procurement, MMC, digital transformation and the road to Net Zero.
To find out more about this healthcare webinar, which is open to the healthcare and construction community, click here. Following on from this virtual event, the insights and findings explored will be collated and published into a discussion paper, which will lead to further events and thought-discussions. We look forward to sharing these insights with our NHS partners.
Kelvin Moulding, Principal, Health Spaces:
“As the UK’s only healthcare construction company dedicated to NHS fast-track design and build, we work closely with Architects for Health to help promote healthcare design. We’re delighted to be Headline Sponsors for the ‘Build’ stream and really look forward to helping to contribute to the thought-leadership and drive positive change for our NHS partners.”
Innovation and thought-leadership
A not-for-profit organisation which provides a forum for sharing best practice, knowledge, innovation and thought leadership relating across the healthcare build environment.
AfH gives members the opportunity to share thoughts and learning as part of a vibrant and engaged healthcare community. A leader in promoting healthcare design, their work reaches across the UK and internationally.
Building better healthcare, faster
The aim of Architects for Health is to promote and campaign for better healthcare environments through bringing together individuals and organisations who share an interest in excellence in the planning and design of healthcare facilities.
Architects for Health is a non-profit making organisation for architects, and anyone interested in the design and planning of healthcare facilities. Its inception in 1992 was a response to the considerable strategic change in the health sector. Since then, AfH have grown into an established organisation with a membership list of around 500 for whom it provides a national network of support, the means to influence policy and as a forum for new ideas.
The annual programme of activities promotes a better understanding of current issues in health planning and design and keeps members informed across the whole range of topics in the health sector. These events are wide ranging in scope and include joint events with clinical societies and royal colleges, or with representatives of organisations active in the procurement of health facilities. An event is held each year at the Reform Club to debate a topical issue such as design quality or the NHS plan, and one event each year has an overseas focus.
Arrangements are made to visit health facilities at home and abroad including presentations and discussion with their designers and management. To find out more or become a member of AfH, visit their online forum.
