Mental Health and Dementia Facilities Forum 2019
Taking place on 14-15 November at Whittlebury Park, Northampton, the Mental Health & Dementia Facilities Forum is the ideal platform to hear from experts, explore suppliers, network with your fellow healthcare professionals. It has been specifically developed to help you to fund, deliver and manage the estates and facilities in this vital and diverse sector.
The provision of mental health and dementia facilities is set to undergo one of the biggest transformations in recent history with the Government’s pledge to invest £3.9bn to accelerate the NHS estate. This injection of funds will result in around 2 million more people who suffer from anxiety, depression or other problems receiving much-needed help.
Building the right facilities is essential to help in the treatment and wellbeing of the many challenges that dementia, mental health, and other related medical conditions provide.
“Why design matters – getting it right both inside and out” is the theme for this year’s seminars and we will hear from the following speakers as they share best practice:
• Matthew Balaam, Partner, Oxford Architects – Broadmoor Hospital’s redevelopment
• Dr Anke Jakob, Research Fellow, Design School, Kingston University – Research findings on positive impact of multi-sensory environments
• Phil Ross, Director, DIMHN – Better product decisions for those designing and building mental health facilities
• Katharine Lazenby, Mental Health Trainer, Peabody Housing Association – Healing environments: a service user perspective on the factors that truly support recovery
• Jeremy Parker, Director, Fira Landscapes – The value of the external environment towards good mental health
• Andrew Kingston, Recovery Service Manager, Camden & Islington NHS FT – Landscapes for dementia
The format is one-and-a-half days packed with seminars, tailored one to one business meetings, networking and an extensive social programme.
A format that has proven to create communities that share knowledge, extend networks and do business better.
