This Health Building Note (HBN) gives general design guidance for healthcare buildings.
It provides an overall picture of the design issues and future-proofing requirements that need to be addressed in a healthcare capital project.
Because of its general nature, its content will be familiar to experienced architects and healthcare planners.
It is intended particularly for:
- those who are new to this work
- patients or their advocates who may be requested to become involved
- commissioning organisations and regulators
