The pain-free approach
Website creation and management, developed for the specific needs of NHS trusts.
Your site. Your way. Your peace of mind.
We work with you to set up project governance structures, engage all your stakeholders and ensure smooth, customised delivery over six stages:
1 Analysis You & ours
We’ve extensively researched the ways people use trust websites, and we use those insights to assess and improve your website content. These data are combined with interviews with your stakeholders that clearly establish your trust’s needs and goals.

2 Planning The three-part plan
We start with mapping the information architecture. We’ll test how this way of organising information meets user expectations, so your site can be optimised early in the process. Content workflows are established alongside tasks and timelines, leading up to a smooth launch date.
We take care of the details, so you can focus on the bigger picture.Learn more: Planning
3 Design Design with an eye towards function
The look and feel of your site influence how your audience interacts with it. We’ll combine best practice with what we learn from users during testing to deliver a design that works. And all in line with NHS style guidelines for digital services. Need a brand refresh while you’re at it? We can do that, too.
Looking good can be this easy.Learn more: Design
4 Build We do the heavy lifting
This is where it all starts to come together. We build, customise and configure Wagtail, taking all that planning to make something you can put your hands on. Copywriting, content entry and content migration are completed during the build.

5 Launch Going live
The countdown to going live includes migrations, redirections, security and content checks, and accessibility and penetration tests. If that sounds like a lot to coordinate, don’t worry. Our experts tick all the technical boxes, so that lift-off is smooth.

6 Support Support for as long as you need it
Your site will be securely hosted on our specially designed AWS public cloud infrastructure. In addition to hosting, our ongoing support includes updates, additions and even development of new components.
We’ll be there when you need us.Learn more: Support
Optional add-on services
Depending on your service needs you can choose to buy some additional professional services, for example an accessibility audit, content migration, penetration testing, load testing, copywriting and branding.
