CHAT Mental Health Network set to launch new agenda

We are delighted to announce that our Director Richard Wilson and the founding members Martha McSweeney and Tim Peters are to launch the CHAT Mental Health Network agenda for 2017.

Richard has been involved with CHAT for several years as Network Lead bringing his experience in the design of healthcare buildings. The Network aims to hold a number of workshops this year, attended by Trusts, Clients, Clinical leads, Designers, Contractors, Suppliers and Service users.

The new agenda will include development of previous outcomes which have identified the benefits of Post Occupancy Evaluations and the need for a tool to identify risk of ‘Slips, trips & falls’ to influence design as well as assessing existing accommodation.

Richard is also a key stakeholder currently commenting on the draft documents as part of the stakeholder engagement process for Department of Health for the draft HBN on CAMHS.

Richard, Director of Building Services, commented; “We are very excited to be working on the 2017 agenda for CHAT Mental Health Network and to move forward with some great initiatives. The work that we have done on Post Occupancy Evaluation was very rewarding from a design point of view to see how the building is used, operated and maintained. In particular, we look forward to the development of the ‘Slips, trips & falls’ tool and the possibilities it will bring to all aspects of healthcare.”
