Our staff are key to the success of the local NHS and to the care provided for local people. This is why strengthening our ability to retain and recruit great staff is at the heart of the New Hospitals Programme.
Think about the needs of all staff, as well as all patients.
Have peaceful rest rooms, green space and gardens.
Integrate communications so everything can happen more quickly.
Leisure facilities for staff to help mental health and wellbeing.
Design rooms with staff safety in mind, e.g. reduce moving and handling.
Build in an eco-friendly way and encourage staff to recycle.
We are encouraging people to provide their views. Capturing your voice is an important part of the process and your comments on our longlist of proposals are warmly welcomed.
