What is this exhibition about?

Researchers at the University of York are exploring connections between the day-to-day practices of preventing cross infection in cystic fibrosis clinics, and the design of the built environment.

Who is this for?

This exhibtion has been designed for patients, clinical staff, architects, designers, researchers interested in health and social care. Through we welcome participation from general clinic users and health workers.

Why are we doing this?

Practices of segregation and infection prevention vary across clinics, as do the buildings people work in. We aim to create dialogue around current design and practice, and explore potential for change, drawing on inspiration from past, present and future examples.
