GOLD: Health Spaces Ltd & James Paget University Hospitals FT: The Concept Ward

James Paget University Hospital worked in collaboration with Health Spaces to deliver a “Concept Ward” — an innovative solution to a complex challenge.

The project originated from needing urgent decant space as the hospital underwent precautionary RAAC (a form of concrete) remedial work. Selected for the New Hospital Programme, the build also presented a golden opportunity for the hospital team to trial hospital 2.0 principles, research single in-patient rooms and test new technologies.

With its “hybrid” mix of single en-suite rooms and two four-bedded bays, the ward will help the trust understand the impact of the innovative ward environment on patients and staff.
