More than 240 tweeters joined a lively discussion on healthcare design last week – here are the hot topics and top tips shared during the debate

On Wednesday the AJ held a one-hour Twitter debate, led by a nine-strong panel, on how we can improve healthcare design, supported by Dulux Trade. The online discussion prompted 680 tweets - enough to get the #buildingsthatcare debate trending on the popular social network.

The debate was structured into five sections, focusing on what makes great healthcare design, practical tips and whether standardisation is a good thing. Here’s a selection of tweets from the debate – you can view the full discussion and carry on the conversation by visiting the #buildingsthatcare Twitter page.
