Healing Spaces in Holistic Healthcare
New approaches to healthcare require different kinds of space. These awards recognise the importance of the built environment in which healthcare happens. We are seeking examples of surroundings that enable holistic healthcare to support personal or communal healing and wellbeing – whether a meditation space, group-work rooms, a community garden, an art room, exercise areas, a health library, even an entire multidisciplinary health centre.
The BHMA in partnership with Nutri Centre, the UK’s leading resource for complementary and alternative remedies and nutritional advice, invite you to submit an entry to their Good Practice Awards 2008. The competition will award a £2000 prize for large scale projects, such as a new practice centre, and a £500 prize for small scale projects, such as a treatment room.
The closing date for entries is 31 January 2008. Ten shortlisted entrants will be invited to participate in an audio-visual exhibition held on Friday 18 April 2008 at the BHMA's 25th Anniversary conference 'Medicine as if people matter' at University of Westminster, London when winning entries will be selected and the awards made.
