Previous Events

Procurement of design services – the good, the bad and the future
The AfH session explored the evolution of the relationship between those who commission designers and those who provide those services, and rounded off with some challenges to take forward. A proposal emerged to bring professional interests from within the NHS and from the private sector as well as professional bodies to a national forum to explore the perceived stumbling blocks in current systems and focus on a more relevant set of guidelines. AfH sees this topic as very poignant as the NHS continues to come under an assortment of pressures and will pick it up in our 2015 programme.
