NHS New Hospital Programme children’s services engagement workshop

The national New Hospital Programme would like to invite patients, carers and public members in our communities to a 90-minute virtual workshop on children's services.

The national New Hospital Programme team are running several patient and public workshops during 2023 and 2024 to hear about your experiences using hospital services to help improve the designs and layout of future hospitals. This is to ensure those who use our hospitals are at the heart of the decisions being made.

They are also working with hospital clinicians, estates teams, digital - information and technology - and workforce colleagues, health regulators, the Royal Colleges, and other professional bodies, as well as public and patient experience groups, to ensure the best designs and clinical standards for all our hospitals are created.

Who this workshop is for

You are invited to join the children's services workshop if you have had recent experience of:

  • Using NHS children's services
  • Having to stay at hospital to be with a sick child
  • Multiple visits to hospital for a child or adolescent chronic condition.

About the workshop

At the workshop, there will be a summary and update on the national New Hospital Programme. You will also be invited to share your thoughts as a user of health services. Your opinions will be taken forward for further discussion to impact the design of new hospitals.

This is a virtual workshop and will be held online using MS Teams on Tuesday 26 September 2023.

You can choose from two 90-minute sessions:

  • Afternoon workshop session: 1 to 2.30pm
  • Evening workshop session: 6 to 7.30pm
