Delivering Same Sex Accommodation – Review of Health Building Note Guidance The Department of Health’s Delivering Same-Sex Accommodation (DSSA) programme aims to all but eliminate mixed-sex accommodation from hospitals in England by 2010. Although DSSA is primarily an operational issue, the design and layout of healthcare facilities can help support the provision of same-sex accommodation. With this in mind, the Department’s Health Building Note (HBN) series of publications has been reviewed against DSSA requirements. Amendments have been made to this document at paragraph 3.26.
