Supporting Research – Invitation to participate in a survey on hospital ward design

This survey is part of a PhD research on hospital design with particular reference to hospital ward design criteria at the School of the Built Environment, Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. The aims of this survey are: to gain insight into professionals’ priorities of ward design criteria which may help policy makers to develop hospital design regulations and guidelines; and to evaluate professionals’ awareness of the importance of particular ward design criteria. These criteria have been chosen based on in-depth interviews with a group of experts in hospital design in the UK.
