Industry: Nonprofit | Health and Social Care
Healthwatch gives people a powerful voice locally and nationally. At a local level, Healthwatch Wirral works to help local people to get the best out of their local health and social care services. Whether it’s improving them today or helping to shape them for tomorrow.
We were commissioned by Healthwatch Wirral to build their website and an online directory for local health services.
As an independent consumer champion, Healthwatch Wirral are required to publish reports about services that deliver health services across Wirral. So it was important that their new website had a space to showcase this work as well as the functionality for the team to publish news, events and reports in a clear format on the site.
Healthwatch Wirral also had need for an online directory for the local health and care services available to Wirral residents.
As part of this project, we worked with members of the Healthwatch Wirral team to rebuild their website in accordance with the Healthwatch England brand. It was important that the site was accessible to all site visitors, so we implemented ‘ReciteMe’, an accessibility tool that allows site users to customise their user experience in a way that works best for them.
Healthwatch Wirral provided almost 300 services from which to build a new online directory of health services, the Spare5 Toolkit. We built a directory into the website that is intuitive for site visitors, maintainable, and easy for the Healthwatch Wirral team to update.
