Building Better Healthcare Commends Sheffield PICU
The judges recognised the marked transformation delivered through the project, describing it as ‘giving the building a new lease of life’. The PICU can often be a place of distress, disturbance and challenging behaviour: the new design supports least restrictive practices and provides an excellent variety of space, inside and out, providing choice and a calm, therapeutic environment for users.
Endcliffe Ward is the first phase of Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust’s ambitious vision for improvements to mental health services. It has established itself as the benchmark and catalyst for the remainder of the Longley Centre. Phase 2 will see the building refurbished, re-modelled and reinvigorated to provide an environment which reflects the highest levels of care for the people of Sheffield.
