Paediatric Wards and Waiting Areas

Birmingham Children's Hospital

Newman Gauge are privileged to have worked closely with the highly regarded Kings Fund and Birmingham Children’s Hospital for over a decade.

Promoting wellbeing through a person’s surroundings is known to enhance a patient’s recovery time. At Birmingham Children’s Hospital we recognise the patients’ needs are considerably different to that of an Adult, promoting play, distraction and interaction was fundamental to their discharge.

Newman Gauge work in partnership with hospital trusts to improve the clinical spaces, we design environments to manage the patient’s perception of a potentially stressful medical facility into a therapeutic environment that promotes relaxation and recovery.

Simple techniques such as colour, pattern, perceived natural finishes and lighting are all carefully considered as part of our concepts along with wayfinding and storage solutions. Birmingham Children’s Hospital has a strong personality which we enhanced with different characteristics for each ward, waiting areas and reception areas.
