Debbie will describe the background to the brief for a new ED, the requirements of the Trust, funding challenges and the aspirations for this new build to meet the growing demands on Walsall Manor Hospital.

Suzanne will demonstrate how a clinically-led approach, developed through workshops with multiple staff groups, ensured both a design wrapped around excellence in patient flow and a solution that improves the experience of patients and staff alike. She will illustrate how this clinically-driven design will help the Trust deliver operational efficiencies throughout its urgent and emergency care pathways.
