A highly influential study that re-examines the QEUH Campus in the context of green infrastructure, wellbeing, bio diversity and active travel.

This study reshapes how to look at hospital campuses. It demonstrates the potential of the hospital landscape to support the life and work of staff, patients, and visitors by creating vibrant and biodiverse outdoor spaces, coherent pedestrian and cycle access and multifunctional spaces that manage water and microclimate.

This is future-proofing the hospital-s immediate environment: for climate change, shifts in policy toward outdoor therapies, and a broader environment for clinical practice.

Staff rest and respite is provided for in many ways, from exercise spaces to sanctuary gardens.
