The demands of an ageing population, a changing workforce and new technologies will shape the future of healthcare ecosystems. New models of healthcare delivery and changing users' needs will fundamentally change healthcare systems and infrastructure – from the hospital to the home.

Sustainability, smart technology and digital services will be fundamental to this transformation, reshaping the delivery and access of healthcare services of the future. Flexible and adaptable healthcare facilities and systems are needed to ensure resilience against these changing requirements.

This report considers the long-term future of healthcare as a collaborative, multi-disciplinary endeavour – one that extends far beyond physical healthcare assets to include transport networks, public spaces, residential and commercial design, urban planning and more.

Highlighting its significant potential to drive impactful change, in 2020, this project won the Consultancy & Collaboration award at the IEMA Sustainability Impact Awards.
