WEBINAR 28th July: REGISTER – The Journey Towards Single In-Patient Rooms

Single patient rooms webinar | 28th July 10.30am – 11.30am

What are the benefits of a single room hospital? Should hospitals provide all patients with single rooms? What are the implications for single patient rooms under the New Hospital Programme (NHP) guidance? How can the design of multi-bed bays be evolved to improve patient and staff experience?

Research has shown that single rooms can increase patients’ privacy, dignity and confidentiality, in addition to giving patients more control over their immediate environment and consequently helping to aid the healing process. Yet the journey taken in designing new hospital ward layouts – balancing cost, space and a Trust’s bespoke requirements – can be challenging.

Join us for a round-the-table discussion with Jaime Bishop, Co-Chair of Architects for Health, Warren Edwards, Project Director at Health Spaces, Paula Miller, Chief Nursing Projects Officer (New Hospital Team) and Diane Goodwin, Operations Director for the New Hospital Programme, as the team highlights the journey taken by James Paget University Hospital as the Trust develops a new 28 bedded decant ward.

This discussion will look at how the team navigated incorporating the guidance of the New Hospital Programme (NHP), evolving the Trust’s layout designs from multi-bed bays only to including 71% single-bed rooms.

Sharing their approaches and plans for incorporating single patient room research, the team will explain the Trust’s dilemmas when considering hospital ward design, looking at the advantages and disadvantages to layouts, space vs cost, patient and staff experience, infection prevention, challenging the traditional and the role of digital innovation.

This webinar will take the format of a live Q&A session. If you have any questions you would like addressing, please email info@health-spaces.com.
