Changing the design industry for the better
The SBID healthcare council consists of experts across the healthcare design sector. The council builds on current healthcare research programmes such as dementia, wellness, infection control and equality compliance. They also work closely with organisations to not only ensure best practice, but to also lead the way in new design concepts for the healthcare industry.
From news articles, journals and Q&As to live talks, debates and seminars, the SBID healthcare council provides expert guidance, inspiration and accuracy as well as helping each designer to improve their standards of practice.
