How Covid 19 is changing hospital design
In this online event, the first of our ‘Better hospitals’ series, four experts will discuss how rapid learning during the first wave of Covid-19 is changing healthcare and hospital design.
They will consider lessons learned from staff and patient experiences, infectious disease modelling and translational research, evidence-based design, and a historical perspective, all of which will apply to designing new hospitals prepared for future pandemics.
The seminar will be live and open to all.
