Jane McElroy

Jane is a chartered architect who has spent the greater part of 30 years, focusing on the design of healthcare buildings.​

As a Principal with global firm NBBJ, she brings a broad international perspective to UK healthcare projects. These involve a range of scales and complexity, urban, suburban and rural settings, and a variety of procurement routes. Current projects include the Royal Liverpool University Hospital redevelopment, which is both transforming healthcare and regenerating the city of Liverpool. By contrast, the completed Acute Hospital for Dumfries and Galloway addresses the challenges of a large development in a rural setting, by creating contemporary vernacular architecture within a richly landscaped campus plan.​

Jane has gained extensive experience of initial briefing, stakeholder consultation, design review and clinical planning, and the integration of these aspects within the broader design concept. She believes that the clarity and legibility of healthcare buildings greatly contribute to an uplifting patient and staff environment, and is a strong advocate of the power of design to enhance human performance, experience and outcomes. Jane has been a Design Council BEE since 2015 and was on the Executive Committee of Architects for Health from 2008-2020 and strongly promotes design quality in healthcare environments.
