Building Blocks for Clinicians was established in 2017 following the identification of a need for additional support for Clinicians within the design process. This culminated in the development of a course, Building Blocks for Clinicians. The purpose of the course is to assist clinicians in understanding NHS project and design processes, empowering clinicians to take part and maximise their input.
The course provides evidence to support clinicians in the importance of involvement in the whole of the project process in their Trust to influence and ensure the design is appropriate. The course has a multi-disciplinary faculty combining lecturers, clinicians, healthcare planners, architects and researchers.
The faculty team provide twice yearly courses for clinicians and plan to extend the course to support interdisciplinary design through a course tailored for architects. This new course will assist the design team in the understanding of the complexities of designing clinical services and environments, and ensure an understanding of the clinician’s importance to the design process to ensure a fully multi-disciplinary design process.
