I track is a comprehensive programme deployed across five west London hospitals to gauge patient opinion on the care they receive. Five I track kiosks with touch-screens and 140 handheld devices are used to gather feedback direct from patients.
Participants can give their views on waiting times, attitudes and behaviours of staff, hospital and ward environment, involvement in their treatment, adherence to good clinical practice and overall rating of their care.
Healthcare Design created the graphics for the kiosks and supporting materials, including the above 3D animation. In the first year of deployment, the system gathered feedback from 90,000 patients.
“It’s great… we love it.”

CSL’s flagship publication, The Eye, came to an end in 2011.
Healthcare Design was commissioned to design and print the final edition, which had a glamorous gold awards-ceremony feel, and charted the progress of the organisation over the years.

NHS managers are always seeking to further improve the patient experience. This year, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust devised the innovative I care programme to help raise awareness of the importance of patient satisfaction.
More than 1,500 staff attended training sessions in which professional actors performed typical scenarios from hospital life. The actors then gathered feedback from staff on how their attitude and communication could be improved, inviting staff to think about how their patient interactions could be more positive.
Associate director of organisational development, Sue Grange, one of I care’s designers, said: “This will inspire staff to think about their behaviour towards patients and each other. It covers many types of situations staff face which involves patients.”
Healthcare Design devised the branding for the initiative and produced course materials to support the training.
“I absolutely love it. I really think we are there with this… thank you so much for turning this around so quickly last week.”

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust was created in 2007 by merging existing trusts with the faculty of medicine at Imperial College London. Now one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, Imperial is applying for Foundation Trust status.
To support this application, Healthcare Design produced a series of marketing materials:
- A series of ads in the local press
- Presentation materials for a run of seminars held by the executive team
- An information leaflet, sent out to every staff member
- Posters and banner stands, placed around Imperial’s five hospitals
- A personalised letter inviting shadow members to attend the AGM. We produced plastic FT membership cards and they were attached to the invite. The AGM enjoyed the largest attendance of any before it
- A printed newsletter, Membership news update was sent out to shadow members. Feedback from the first couple of issues has been very positive
“Looks good, thank you!”

The new kid on the block pioneering the quality improvement agenda in the NHS across Kent, Surrey and Sussex is the Enhancing Quality Programme (EQP). This Government-endorsed programme is reaching out to patient and carer groups across the region to assist in embedding patient experience into local NHS services.
Healthcare Design provided the branding for the EQP. We used a simple approach with a restricted colour palette to create a strong impact. We integrated the branding into a range of stationery and provided an asset library for future use.
“I am very happy with the result… the design has been well received by everyone who has seen it.”
