take a seat, we're testing chairs

Caroline, Anil and Mena testing out chairs

Staff and consumer feedback plays an important role in the designing our hospital.

At a recent furniture showcase, staff and community representatives assisted our Furniture, Fittings and Equipment (FF&E) team to make sure the selection of chairs are appropriate for waiting and visitor areas within the new hospital building.

More than 30 chair types were tested and feedback was provided from various users including nursing, allied health and general services to help make a selection.

“It’s important for us to work with staff and consumers closely, so we can furnish spaces that will meet their needs”, Caroline said.

Collaboration with users will continue throughout the project to help with the planning for additional FF&E items like tap fittings and equipment in staff, patient and visitor areas.
