what our customers in healthcare say...

NHS England

Living in an increasingly digital world, the NHS England website is often the first place people go for health information, so it is vital that it’s accessible to as many people as possible.  1 in 10 people in the UK have literacy or language challenges meaning that accessing the information on websites can be difficult.
