External healthcare signage is the directional and customer information signage found outside hospital (and care home) buildings. It can also be used for aesthetic purposes, bringing a look of the outside in to wards and corridors and creating nostalgia displays in dementia friendly environments.
Hospitals are large, complex buildings and can be difficult to navigate for anyone. The role of wayfinding signage is to enable people, who may never have been to the building and who may have a range of levels of understanding due to health conditions, to easily find their way around it.
Wall murals are particularly useful in hospital wards as they bring the outside in and generally make them less clinical and more aesthetically pleasing. These can be suitable for all types of wards and areas though work particularly well in children’s wards and dementia friendly environments.
