Primary Care Design.

What are the current trends?

Venue: RICS, Great George Street, London, SW1P 3AD

Time; 7.45 - 10.15am


The delivery of primary and community healthcare has changed significantly over the last twenty years with a broader range of services provided and a focus on prevention and local access. According to a recent report by Reform - "Investing in the primary care estate is key to facilitating a sustainable healthcare system."
Come and join us as our expert panel discuss:
  • The range of services now being delivered and what types of spaces are required?
  • How can we organise these spaces to be efficient, flexible and user-friendly?
  • How adaptable are spaces to changing service needs and pathways?
  • Are GP's equipped to deliver new care models?
  • How is modern technology and digital media transforming the way we access primary care?
