About us

The Healthcare Planning Academy is a membership organisation for healthcare planning professionals.

Who we are

We aim to maintain and continuously improve standards and knowledge and to provide entrants and practitioners within the discipline with a professional development resource and an industry-wide framework of recognised accreditation.

Throughout the year, the Academy supports its members to stay ahead of the curve by running regular seminars and events on a range of healthcare planning topics, discussing the latest trends and advances in the planning and design process for health infrastructure.
