First for Wales “Building with Nature” award for landmark new hospital developmentMon 25th Jul 2022 at 00:00

The Our Health Meadow project has been awarded the UK’s first benchmark for green infrastructure – “Building with Nature” - for a scheme which is at the forefront of showing how hospital development can be good for people and nature. The first project in Wales to be awarded the benchmark was announced on June 20th by Vaughan Gething MS for Cardiff South and Penarth and Suzanne Rankin, CEO of Cardiff and Vale Health Board. Vaughan Gething MS said, “I’m really interested in seeing what we can create together here and the benefit it will provide for both patients, staff and the wider community. To develop something together with nature to have not just a net biodiversity gain but provide even more evidence for how outdoor health care can help you, me and everybody else who need our NHS.” Cardiff & Vale UHB CEO, Suzanne Rankin said, “Our Health Meadow is an absolutely inspirational project which is creating a new kind of space for health care delivery. It will create the opportunity for us to explore, and develop an understanding of the evidence base around this kind of healthcare, and create a space where our local community can get down to nature and experience this wonderful landscape.”
