Creative Thinktank

This Thinktank, co-created by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Snape Maltings Creative Campus, will bring together leading researchers, policy-makers, clinicians, practitioners and other stakeholders to consider physical/technological/human/natural/artistic/cultural aspects of The Future Hospital. In particular, it will explore how these elements can be integrated to provide the ideal hospital environment conducive to:

  • improving patient experience and wellbeing
  • accelerating recovery
  • minimising additional health complications associated with hospital admittance

Facilitated by Katherine Zeserson, discussions will embrace a wide range of perspectives, stimulate fresh thinking and lead towards collaborative developments in transformative healthcare.

The Thinktank will take place at Snape Bridge House in Suffolk on 9-10 Sept 2019. For more information, contact Jess Chapman:
