Building Blocks for Clinicians - 16th and 17th of May 2019

Great Ormond Street Hospital are running the Building Blocks for Clinicians course again on the 16th and 17th of May 2019. It is aimed at clinicians who would like to be, or are currently involved in redevelopment or building work.  Any project big or tiny. Here is the link:

https://courses.gosh.org/building_blocks_for_clinicians_16052019

It is particularly useful for colleagues in IR as it is a rapidly evolving specialty where the requirement for new facilities is enormous. Clinical involvement in the design process is essential to ensure the space that is developed is appropriate and enhances the care you can give.

Unfortunately, the reality is, that design of a new IR lab is  often a deeply frustrating process and  no one will listen to your views.

This 2 day course aims to give an overview of the design and construction process to empower clinicians to participate meaningfully in design of the environment for them and their patients. 

The previous courses have had excellent feedback:
“What an incredible course – novel, inspiring and leading the way to create a future of clinical health care”
“Excellent course; stimulated many thoughts and areas to clarify when involved in projects.”
“Very enjoyable course. There is nothing else like it; it very much broadened my horizons”


We would love you to attend and please forward to other members of your team that might be interested. Anyone working on the “front line “ in health care is welcome. So Radiographers, nurses and anaesthetists working within IR would also benefit from attending.

If you are considering a redevelopment project of your facilities, it may be useful to attend with some/all of your team.

If you can’t make May, there is an another course in November. https://courses.gosh.org/BBfC_Nov2019
