Building Better Healthcare Awards 2022

Health Spaces are delighted to be attending the Building Better Healthcare Awards on Wednesday 2nd November. Working in collaboration with University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, we have submitted our recent work at Leicester General Hospital to demonstrate how modern offsite construction methods can benefit the NHS in providing shorter construction times, less disruption at live hospital sites and significant cost savings.

This particular healthcare design and construction project was critical to improving staff welfare and creating additional reporting space, with Modern Methods of Construction playing a key part in rapidly delivering this much needed additional space.

Building Better Healthcare Awards 2022 - the categories

Healthcare design awards

In the past two years, health services around the world have undergone a transformation as they struggle to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the delivery of health services. This has led to the widespread adoption of innovative products and services, and this approach is reflected in the categories chosen for this year’s Building Better Healthcare Awards.

As a specialist healthcare design and construction company, earlier this year Health Spaces delivered a CDH reporting centre for Leicester General Hospital.

The space was to form a critical component of the community diagnostic hub for the hospital, requiring reporting for six operators, including breakout space, WC and kitchenette. Due to the site’s proximity to patient traffic and ambulance routes, the Trust needed to ensure for a rapid deployment with minimal disruption to services for patients and staff. This requirement and urgency would not allow for traditional construction or multiple visits/blockages to the location.

Health Spaces worked closely with the Trust to undertake a detailed discovery with clinicians and estates, designing a bespoke turnkey modular build, manufactured off-site and arriving at the hospital 95% complete – significantly reducing work for the Trust’s estate’s team.

Commenting on this year’s awards, Jo Makosinski, editor of Building Better Healthcare and organiser of the awards, said: “So much innovation has happened over the last two years, from the rapidly-constructed COVID-19 wards and testing centres, to new technological solutions and infection control regimes, and the Building Better Healthcare Awards will highlight and recognise these incredible efforts.

“The judges are looking for entries that clearly set out how products, projects, and services have made a positive impact on health service delivery and how they could be rolled out more widely to benefit the sector as a whole, both nationally and internationally.”
