Our vision is simply to create a hospital for children and families that sets new standards in two key areas – patient care and the interplay between architecture, organisation and operations. The new hospital will accord equal focus to treatment, research and training while striving to be the best in all three. We will establish an Academy where the hospital can share its professional competencies with educational institutions, research departments and the wider business community. We will invent and introduce a new continuity of patient care, bringing specialists to the patient rather than the other way round. We will make the hospital accessible to the outside world.
