Design for Health

UK design firm Priestmangoode believe that healthcare could be improved by applying the same design principles to hospitals and clinics that are applied in the luxury travel trade and first class cabins in airplanes.

They have written a manifesto, which revolves around the following principles:

  1. Healthcare doesn’t need to be in a hospital;
  2. Buildings need to be planned and well-thought out, not evolve ad hoc;
  3. Patient spaces need to be flexible to needs;
  4. Spaces should be specifically designed for purpose;
  5. Modern equipment doesn’t have to break the bank;
  6. Patients need to undergo a healthcare journey, not become part of the ‘system’.

Visit Priestmangoode to read the manifesto and find out what their solutions are.
