Hospital designed by Norman Foster for well-being


One of Britain's most famous architects, Lord Foster, has built his first hospital, Circle Bath near Bath.

Rather than a traditional hospital design, it feels like a hotel, with sky lights and art decorating the walls. It is hoped that the pleasurable surrounding will increase patients' well-being and help them get better faster.

David Sillito reports.
