NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement - Mixed Sex Accommodation - Guidance and Checklist

This guidance outlines 11 key principles to support the achievement of good physical separation of the sexes in hospital accommodation. It includes a self-assessment checklist to help trusts identify issues that need to be addressed.

Mixed sex wards have been identified as inconsistant with respecting patients' privacy and dignity on the ward and this resource gives illustrations and practical examples of how the problem may be averted.
