Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust has been routinely rated highly in the Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE) results since inception, repeatedly exceeding the national average across all areas.

The PLACE visits assess the patient environment and how well it supports and enhances the provision of clinical care and are carried out by groups of assessors including service users, relatives, carers, and patient advocates.

The annual assessments score NHS organisations on cleanliness, quality and availability of food and drink, how well the building meets the needs of the people who use it including being dementia-friendly, and how well the environment protects people’s privacy and dignity.

Estates and Facilities teams lead initiatives to improve the patient environment including redecoration schemes, new furniture, improvements to therapeutic space, improved signage, new doors and windows to support patient safety and outdoor space initiatives.
