Hassle-Free Hospital
I posed the challenge to the AH rebuilding team: build a
hospital designed with patients unambiguously at the centre of
the focus, with technology fully exploited for the benefit and
convenience of patients. It will be a hospital which is well
linked and to which the patients can be transferred
seamlessly It will be a hassle-free hospital.
