We have a long history working with the healthcare industry, designing wayfinding schemes and supplying sign systems.
Hospitals are often complex environments and hence very difficult to navigate. This is further complicated by the added stress and anxiety visitors to a building of this nature are already experiencing. Because of this, poor wayfinding tends to leave people feeling bewildered and confused to which direction they should go. It is the job of hospital wayfinding to guide a visitor through the site efficiently and consequently with minimum stress. This should allow them to reach their desired location efficiently and on time, consequently reducing the amount of stress experienced.
We believe people should be able to understand exactly where they need to be without having to ask a member of staff, consequently resulting in fewer unnecessary staff interactions.
Successful Hospital wayfinding aims to increase efficiencies across all communications, and as a result, help to tackle the problem of missed appointments costing the NHS each year millions of pounds each year.
