The future of the integrated health & social care estate in Scotland

Providing adolescent mental healthcare closer to home

Eileen Bray, Clinical Services Coordinator, NHS Ayrshire and Arran.  & Lianne Knotts, Director and Senior Architect, Medical Architecture.

NHS National has commissioned a National Secure Adolescent Inpatient Service (NSAIS) for young people aged 12 – 18, with complex mental health needs.  Currently, this level of support can only be provided in England, meaning that young people are transferred from Scotland to appropriate units away from their families and support networks.

This case study will present the design and clinical aspects of the new building for NHS Ayrshire and Arran, which will provide a 12 bedded secure facility for adolescents detained under mental health legislation to support their treatment.  The facility is being designed by Medical Architecture with Kier Construction as Principal Supply Chain Partner under Frameworks Scotland 2.

Design choices to help people with dementia access the ‘Room Outside

Annie Pollock, Associate Consultant, Architect & Landscape Architect – Dementia Centre, HammondCare & Ricky Pollock, Associate Consultant Architect, Dementia Centre, HammondCare.

Design can help or hinder people with dementia. Given the number of recent studies that show how vital it is to get fresh air, sunshine, activities and social contact to promote health in older age, it important to understand that by good design, you can help this happen. A knowledge of the right products to use is vital too, as these are part of the equation in enabling older people and those with dementia, who may have several disabilities.

Future ready healthcare

Simon Kydd, Head of Healthcare, WSP

The future is now, because healthcare is changing…

The next generation of healthcare buildings will be very different from the hospitals, clinics and GP surgeries we are familiar with today. A revolution in building design is already upon us, prompted by an acceleration of technological innovation, rapidly-ageing populations, changing expectations of how healthcare should be provided, and a growing realisation that the environment is an important part of the healing process.

This presentation outlines WSP’s approach to this changing health landscape and sets up a series of aspects to consider during the briefing and design process to ensure our health buildings are “future ready”

The importance of the design, build and operation of healthcare infrastructure in the effective delivery of health and care services

Clare Haughey, Minister for Mental Health

A more integrated range of care and social services

The future of Scottish Health care, will reflect on the way in which “a more integrated range of care and social services” are driving a much more innovative approach to the design of care buildings and how this is impacting on local communities, we will use the New Gorbals health and care centre Glasgow, to illustrate this theme.
