Jenny has been commissioned to evaluate a new A&E department, to determine the impact that the design has had upon urgent care pathways and the patient experience. The process involves gathering systematic feedback from both patients and staff. The evaluation also includes a building performance assessment looking at energy use and performance of the building fabric.


Five other healthcare environments have also been evaluated, including three acute hospitals, one mental health hospital and a healthcare centre. In all of these evaluations, the aim was to establish the impact of the building in operation upon both staff and patients.
