The national New Hospital Programme would like to invite you to a 90-minute virtual engagement workshop.

Share your experiences and views about pharmacy and the management of medicines whilst admitted in hospital and how this relates to the built environment. Share your thoughts on using and accessing your medicines, how they were stored and managed by you or others whilst on the ward, and any good practices or difficulties you experienced in relation to pharmacy during your stay.

The national New Hospital Programme team are running several patient and public workshops during 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 will be running a separate session about pharmacy services relating to discharge from hospital.

The national New Hospitals Programme 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.
