Architects for Health

Architects for Health has been a forum for sharing best practice, knowledge, innovation and thought leadership in the healthcare built environment since 1992.

AfH was the brainchild of a handful of individuals working in healthcare who saw the need for a forum that would promote best practice, innovation and design quality. Through the Phil Gusack Talk we created a space for debate and controversy; we’ve encouraged future generations with our hugely popular Student Design Awards, and we’ve celebrated successful projects with the AfH Awards, now incorporated into the European Healthcare Design Awards and Design Matters.

None of this has been achieved without the support of our industry partners and sponsors, for which we are eternally grateful.

We also support an academic programme at the European Healthcare Design Congress, in addition to offering numerous opportunities for social and professional networking AfH started off as a group solely comprising architects but it has since developed into a much broader forum. It is now offering NHS employees access to its programme free of charge (up to three colleagues per NHS organisation).

Our work reaches across the UK and internationally: we are a world leader in promoting healthcare design and proudly partner with SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange to deliver the European Healthcare Design Congress.
