How sustainable is our Healthcare Estate?


Nick Martin - Great Ormond Street Hospital

Kevin Smith - Ramboll

Xav Roberts - Murphy Philipps

Time; 8.15 - 9.15am

What are the demand drivers required when master planning a sustainable healthcare estate and what strategic operational process reviews need to occur to achieve this. How has the COVID 19 pandemic made us reassess previous assumptions?


Come and join us for our HCN webchat as we discuss how we go about defining what a sustainable healthcare estate is and what is the best way to measure this and the scale of the challenge ahead? We will ask how important is the drive for developing a roadmap to zero carbon and should there be a drive for off-site and other modern methods of construction to achieve this? Has the design of renewable technology improved significantly to the benefit of the education estate?
