Ikonografik Design help Sheffield GP practice to perform as a major support centre in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.

21st October 2020

Sheffield based architectural practice Ikonografik Design has helped one of the largest Sheffield GP practices to perform as a major support centre in the front-line fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.

Originally engaged by Woodhouse Health Centre several years ago to help create more clinical and staff space, Ikonografik Design also helped design the public, front of house reception areas. This included a standalone 24-hour separate support hub. Pro-active infection control measures were designed and built into the expansion project, way before they were actually needed with such clinical intensity. These measures included high performance glass screens and security features, as part of the new bespoke reception counter package that Ikonografik Design helped design and install. The enhanced infection control measures needed were already in place before Coronavirus occurred and has helped staff deal quickly and safely with infectious patients.

This has sadly also corresponded with an increase in threatening behaviour from patients. However, in-built passive security measures, designed in conjunction with South Yorkshire Police architectural liaison officers, have also helped keep staff safe from harm.

Gordon Osborne, Practice Manager at Woodhouse Health Centre, said:

“The out of hours hub has been especially useful during the Covid pandemic and has enabled us to offer a city-wide service at speed. While other practices were busy setting up protective screens and intercom systems we already had these in place and were able to hit the ground running. We are very pleased that we had these designed and installed prior to the pandemic striking which enabled us to help the people of Sheffield in a big way”
