Achieving Priorities & Driving Collaboration

The Future of Independent Healthcare Estates - NOW AVAILABLE ON DEMAND

Original webinar date: Thursday 16 May, 2024
Duration: 58 mins

Collaboration plays a pivotal role in delivering care. This is particularly clear in the relationship between independent healthcare providers and the NHS, with providers supporting NHS performance priorities, working through extensive care waiting lists. While collaboration is a core priority for healthcare providers, the upkeep and refurbishment of estates and facilities at private hospitals and centres are not to be neglected. Private hospital admissions are on the rise across all nations, led by an increase in diagnostic procedures; therefore, having modern and fit-for-purpose environments will ensure that exceptional patient care is continually delivered.  The developing situation presents an opportunity to explore the best use of resource, solutions, and the adaptability of buildings for the future of the independent estate.  Building Better Healthcare and Darwin Group are pleased to collaborate on this webinar, hosting speakers from across the health and care space to discuss the priorities and key themes across the independent care Estates landscape.

In this webinar, we discuss:

  • The independent priorities for NHS estate collaboration
  • The benefits of selecting less-permanent adaptable solutions 
  • The flexibilities and available options when selecting new buildings
