Can you develop solutions that reduce the human and financial costs of violence and aggression in hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments?
According to the National Audit Office, violence and aggression towards frontline hospital staff is estimated to cost the NHS at least £69 million a year in staff absence, loss of productivity and additional security.
We know designers have what it takes to reduce the impact of violence and aggression in A&E. We are currently judging submissions from multi-disciplinary ‘design and make’ teams to determine which teams will be awarded funds to help improve the experience of A&E departments and make them safer for staff, patients and visitors.
Join the Reducing Violence and Aggression in A&E by design Ning to talk to other designers, fabricators, building contractors, manufacturers, service providers and specialist consultancies interested in the challenge.
