About this Case Study

What will it take for the NHS website to become people’s preferred first port of call to understand, manage and take control of their health? A new information architecture for one. Described as the most important transformation challenge in the public sector today, nhs.uk is one of the UK’s largest, most complex websites, with over 50 million visits a month, tens of thousands of pages, and a target audience that is, quite literally, everyone.

Sophie is leading the team creating a new information architecture for nhs.uk. One that, if we get it right, will provide a solid platform for all patient-facing digital health services for the next decade.

Get a glimpse of how we’re starting to tackle this massive challenge, combining traditional IA methods with service design thinking and innovative data analysis techniques to deliver a large-scale IA for almost every health topic imaginable.
