Winner of Best Internal Environment Award
Building Better Healthcare Awards

We had a great day at the Building Better Healthcare Awards with Chris Knight - Capital Projects Officer and Vanessa Saunders - Assistant Director of Nursing of The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on Wednesday 5th November at The Brewery, Central London.

We are delighted to announce that the Beaconsfield East Ward was WINNER of the Best Internal Environment Award in the Patient Experience Class, Highly Commended in the Best External Environment Award and was considered for the Best Collaborative Arts Project.

This award recognises an outstanding therapeutic space that enhances the overall experience of patients, staff and visitors through an effective approach to the interior design.

The judges said: “This is an exemplar; a very comprehensive ward refurbishment to meet the needs of frail elderly people and those with dementia. We particularly liked the use of colour and art to help with way finding, the provision of social space for patients and relatives, and the way the design has thoughtfully connected the internal and external environments.” - See more at:,2YHV7,I3DCSB,ANZMS,1#sthash.8zPkIUMO.dpuf
