Awards recognise excellence in healthcare provision
NOMINATIONS are currently being invited for the 2012 Building Better Healthcare Awards, with entries in 16 categories celebrating the best premises, products, people and processes in the healthcare sector today.
Celebrating the best completed building designs, there are awards for Best Specialist Services Design, Best Inpatient Facility, Best Out-of-Hospital Care Facility and Best International Healthcare Design.
New categories introduced for 2012 include a ‘Futures Class’, which will reward healthcare building design concepts put forward by students and professional architects. There will also be an expanded Technology Class recognising innovations that are helping to improve productivity, patient outcomes and the overall patient experience.
Each entry will be scrutinised by a seven-strong team of judges made up of industry experts and chaired by healthcare commentator, Roy Lilley. The shortlist will be announced in the summer and the final winners will be revealed at a ceremony at The Brewery in central London on 7 November.
The 2012 awards come at a time when the NHS is under pressure as never before, says Roy Lilley. “The challenge of saving £20bn by 2015 and a major structural reorganisation means all parts of the NHS are having to play their part, especially estates and facilities professionals and suppliers of medical devices.
“Without innovative ideas and products, technically-advanced buildings, and clever remodelling, the NHS will not be able to meet its targets.”
