Prototype privacy panels will be installed in cubicles of one bay on the refurbished post-natal Templar Ward from 31 March until 2 May.

The privacy panels are part of Routine Procedures, a project that has been developed by artist Helen Stratford alongside Practice Development and Essence of Care nurses at Homerton Hospital since October 2007 to explore the communication of staff presence while respecting patient privacy.

The project is part of The Other Side of Waiting being developed for the new Perinatal centre by artist group Taking Place, funded by external sources including Arts Council England.

Together with Homerton staff, Margaret Howat and Sarah Stewart, and textile designer Anne Marre, Helen will introduce the prototype curtains into the ward, and the impact will be examined with nurses, doctors, midwives, hospital services, ward managers and users.

These prototypes - exploring high impact and visually attractive graphics together with different potential fixing devices - have also been designed in relation to associated issues such as hygiene and laundry processes.
