Architects for Health was delighted to attend the hybrid IHEEM conference this year, with a stand in the main hall and a series of online leadership streams.

Our stand, showcasing the work of a number of our members, attracted interest from attendees – both old friends and new. We enjoyed the opportunity to talk to people about our 2022 programme of events and sponsorship opportunities.

AfH Digital Showreel at IHEEM 2021

In the virtual world we hosted a series of events aligned to the overall conference themes and facilitated by AfH Committee members. These events focused on:

  • The Future of Healthcare Design
  • Procurement, Policy & Standards: How do we build what we actually need?
  • Virtually Healthy: How is Digital transformation changing the design of healthcare environments?
  • Engagement on the Edge: Design Team lessons learned from a pandemic
  • Automation and Robotics in Healthcare

Our panels of speakers came from across the UK and Europe, including NHS staff. The talks included a look back at lessons learnt from the Nightingale programme and other Covid projects; and looked forward to the design and build of new hospitals. Key questions were debated around the why, where and when for future hospitals, focusing particularly on the resilience of both the buildings and the systems. The role of technology was also discussed, including innovation in the NHS from an Acute Trust perspective, and robotic systems that are successfully being used in European hospitals.

The breadth of experience our speakers brought led to some lively and varied discussions – and we would like to thank again everyone who participated. We look forward to seeing people in Manchester in 2022.
