Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust – A Model for Health & Healing

This NHS seminar will be a practical, joint session between Beatrice Fraenkel, Chairman of Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, and Jaime Bishop, Co-Chair of Architects for Health, to deliver ways for NHS executives to embed design into a Trust’s strategy.

This session will show how the cycle of urgent response can be successfully broken in order to commit to long term estate and wider service delivery infrastructure.

Chair of Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and Honorary Fellow of RIBA, Beatrice is an industrial designer and ergonomist specialising in systems and designs that meet the needs of recipients and end users. She uses this approach in chairing, building and developing successful boards based on strong governance and delivering good outcomes. Drawing on her years of experience in building hospitals for the NHS, Beatrice will demonstrate how she reshaped the Board’s thinking to integrate a dedicated Design Board to act as the Trust Client.

Comprising of patients, clinicians, estates and finance members, architects, local councillors and the community, the Design Board determine the brief based on user requirements. This feeds into the Trust governance structure to ensure the Trust’s healthcare builds are cost effective in delivering spaces that support healing and recovery, places staff want to be, and are safe and sustainable.

Jaime Bishop will speak about the wider benefits of design being embedded into Trusts and the need for long term strategy over short term to improve environments for patient and staff.

Executive leadership agenda:

  • How do we change the NHS culture to gain strategic engagement in design?
  • Building a sustainable board structure: training your board to drive the design process, training for executives, the leadership required.
  • The role of your design board: detailed discovery, formulation and testing of briefs.
  • Case studies: health & healing for staff and patients.
