The 9th European Healthcare Design 2023 (EHD2023) Congress & Exhibition will be held on 12–14 June, 2023 at the Royal College of Physicians in London, UK and broadcast ‘live’ on SALUS TV to a worldwide audience.
Organised by SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange and Architects for Health, the congress promotes a whole-systems approach to understanding how to plan and operationalise international health systems and infrastructure through the exchange of knowledge, research and global best practice on the relationship between service and system design, technology and the built environment.
The congress is organised in partnership with the UK and Europe’s expert professional bodies from the healthcare planning and design fields, international academic institutions, leading public and private health providers, and the healthcare industries.
AHDC members are entitled to the Event Partner rate, which is £575 + VAT instead of £625 + VAT, so a £50 + Vat discount off the fee.

Members travelling to London for the Congress are also encouraged to join the AHDC Study Tour which will visit France and Switzerland immediately after EHDC2023.
For the first time since 2019, we are offering an curated international study tour to visit health facilities in France and Switzerland. The study tour is open to 20 people and will feature a perfect balance between learning, networking with peers and local hosts, and enough time for rest & recreation.
Tour dates have been set to follow on from the European Healthcare Design Congress and Exhibition (EHDC2023) which will be held on 12 - 14 June, 2023 at the Royal College of Physicians in London, UK. The theme of the conference is “Fault lines and front lines: Strengthening health system resilience”.
As of 16 April 2023, we have had most visits formally confirmed, but a few only verbally. This means that there is a small chance that a planned visit may not go ahead as planned or that the order may change.

Inclusive design is not aspirational, it is fundamental. This webinar will explore the question: How can universal design support inclusion and improve wellbeing in healthcare settings?
We need to engage meaningfully with the community and develop design responses that will create access and safe spaces for everyone. The places we create should reflect and include the voices of many different people and this is particularly true for essential services such as healthcare. Extensive research confirms the benefits of well-designed places, and the positive impact of design on our lives. The connection between design and neuroscience, health, wellbeing, and human behaviour is evident, and it is important that this evidence-base informs decision making about the shape, nature and function of our cities, buildings, and landscapes. Hassell’s research, ‘Equal access is not an optional extra’, reports that to create a truly inclusive environment, designers should stretch beyond regulatory compliance and consider comfort and wellness, all abilities and gender, and understand local context, traditions and heritage and develop genuine relationships with stakeholders to ultimately create Places People Love.

Our events are attended by a wide range of professionals interested in Health Design including Architects, Clinical Planners, Engineers, Project Managers, Academics, Professional Researchers, Health Service Providers and Health Service Managers.
Come along: learn, connect and be inspired.
Designing for health is not a “one-size-fits all” exercise and there is no magic bullet that can provide optimal outcomes without compromise. This conference aims to bring together the diverse knowledge and experience of designers, clinical planners and healthcare specialists to discuss the many small steps it takes to deliver better health buildings to support a more human-centred, inclusive, and future-focused healthcare delivery.
Under the theme of “there is no magic bullet”, we will be focusing on designing for Recovery, Scale and Country which you can read about here:
