Green Spaces Project of the Month

September 2004 - St Gemma's Hospice, Leeds

Sr Brigid Murphy, Director of Spiritual Excellence

St Gemma's Hospice in the Moortown district of Leeds has been revamped to create an environment where the presence of nature is thought to be critical to successful healthcare. Good, holistic hospital design of this kind offers an important model at a time when significant government funding is being invested in improving the architecture of health care settings. Meanwhile, the Joint Leeds Hospices Ethnic Minority Project has recommended that policies should reflect diversity issues throughout all aspects of the palliative care service. This article explores the extent to which the needs of ethnic communities have been considered in the landscape design which is so central to St Gemma's philosophy and structure. Impressive efforts have been made to move from a singular religious outlook to a more inclusive, multi-faith approach. Potential for further development is identified.
