Patients, families and visitors are being encouraged to give feedback about the upcoming refurbishment at Carseview Centre in Dundee and Murray Royal Hospital in Perth.
The ‘sharing stations’ have been set up in the foyers of the hospital sites so people have the opportunity to share their views on topics such as ward and bedroom layouts and colour palettes. The feedback is being used by the design team to support refurbishment plans.
This is part of an ongoing engagement programme for people to participate in the co-design of the environments at both Carseview and Murray Royal to ensure the sites meet the needs of patients for the future.
Focus groups on the wards are also taking place with current inpatients and staff, with further engagement events being arranged with local service users, carers and third sector groups. The engagement is part of the Mental Health and Learning Disability Service Redesign Transformation Programme.
