Event description
In 2020 the UK government committed to building a raft of new hospitals as part of a package worth £3.7 billion. But do we really need them?

About this event

If hospitals are places where you go to get fixed, wouldn’t it be better to concentrate on where best to stop us getting broken in the first place? Caring for our health (both physical and mental) when we’re designing buildings and places must be our priority, after all, prevention is better than cure.

Consider the barbershop and its positive effect on men’s mental health. Even the NHS recognises it, so much so, they launched a training session for barbers last year, to help them spot the early signs of ill-health.

We’ve invited some of the most influential leaders from the fields of health, care and design to share their views on who is responsible for our health, what it is that defines healthy environments and how design impacts their work.

Join us in the Study Studio at The Foundling Museum for a lively debate hosted by Ewan Graham, Partner & Healthcare lead at Hawkins\Brown and his eclectic panel of speakers:

• Dr Rachel Clarke, author and palliative care doctor

• Hilary Evans, Chief Executive, Alzheimer’s Research UK

• Rama Gheerawo, Director, Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, Royal College of Art

• Tim Goodacre, Vice President, Royal College of Surgeons

• Marian Ridley, Director, Evelina London
