Exhibition: A Picture of Health

Add to Scrapbook

Over the past 4 years, NHSScotland has embarked on a world-leading process, NHSScotland Design Assessment Process (NDAP), in which the experience of patients and staff are given a clear voice in the brief of new facilities, and those responsible for projects must show how this brief is going to be achieved as they apply for funding permission.

In this exhibition we capture a snapshot of how this new way of working is helping improve the nature, amenity and value for money of projects. We hear from people who have been involved in NDAP, the policy leaders and staff in the NHS, on the benefits they feel are being achieved.

We share the aspirations of the building users who contributed to the formation of design statement’s and celebrate the great places that have been built, or are soon to be built, in our NHS: we also highlight the design teams whose skills in responding to these briefs in a way that is both uplifting and economical have been key to realising the Vision of Health.
