‘Utopia or dystopia: Visioning the future of health’ is the headline of this year’s European Healthcare Design Congress & Exhibition 2018 on from 11th to 13th June. It’s a hot topic; this July the NHS will be celebrating its 70th birthday and we can only imagine what the next 70 years will bring for the healthcare landscape.  With expected changes in climate, technology, society, demographics and resources, healthcare facilities will be very different from those we experience today and this conference promises to tackle these issues head on.
