This two day course, hosted by Healthcare Design Leadership, provides an immersive introduction to the whole project lifecycle. It supports healthcare leaders by identifying the importance of involvement in the whole project process and supporting the operational effectiveness and the quality of the hospital design.
As the end users of a healthcare facility patients, clinicians and managers have been key stakeholders in the hospital design process. Whilst they are frequently asked for extensive input into projects, they often do not have full knowledge of the process or understand some of the technical parameters that facilitate or constrain decision making. As such healthcare leaders are often unable to become fully engaged in the multidisciplinary design of clinical services and built environments, potentially compromising the quality of the final outcome.
Caroline Mulholland, Clinical Liaison Manager, and Stuart McArthur, Healthcare Sector Leader, will be speakers at this two day event, offering their invaluable expertise and industry knowledge to an already exemplary speaker line up. Other companies represented on the course will be Mott McDonald, ESP, PwC, MJ Medical and TClarke.
Caroline & Stuart will be representing Sir Robert McAlpine, explaining the benefits of early contractor involvement in the design process. They will look at contract choice and how budget, price, and cost are not synonymous. They will talk about risk and how best to manage this, including reference to change management.
They will also discuss how design information is developed - focusing on what MMC is, using this to explain why the supply chain is now so critical in bringing the technical design and (digital) innovation into schemes at the outset.
