Outpatients Reception Scoops Award

ADP is delighted to announce that the new Outpatients Reception and associated works at Salford Royal has won a Building Better Healthcare award. 

The project was selected from 170 entries by leading GP, Dr Roy Macgregor, to win the Clinician’s Choice Award. This award is given to the scheme that is deemed to have had the biggest impact on the patient experience and outcomes. 

ADP was appointed as architect and project manager for the refurbishment of the Outpatients Reception, with the aim to improve the patient experience and efficiency, whilst effectively linking the facility to the new principle entrance and circulation strategy. 

The design utilises the Trust’s brand colours and bold graphics on the floors and walls to create a strong identity and assist in wayfinding - a striking departure from the traditional hospital environment. To engender a more engaging and approachable patient focused facility, the design team worked with the Trust to develop a bespoke reception ‘pod’ desk design to reduce the barriers between staff and visitors. 

Lindsay McKluskie, Project Manager, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust said ‘ADP has delivered an exceptional design that raises the bar for good design in healthcare. From a limited brief they have steered the project carefully to engage the Trust and deliver ground breaking proposals that embodies our ethos of safe, clean and personal care. The final result is of a calm and reassuring quality, which provides us with a clear strategy that we can implement across the estate.’
