Transforming digital health and care
NHS.UK is designing a digital health and care service that better connects people to the information and services they need. The user is at the heart of everything we do.
NHS.UK will provide clear, simple health information connected to quality, trusted digital services. We will offer a personalised experience, supporting people to manage their own health. NHS.UK will be central to a network of services provided by national, local and third party organisations. We will help to deliver the next generation of digital healthcare, improve efficiency and increase quality for all.

The user at the heart of NHS.UK
Our work is research-led and focuses on the needs of patients, carers and front-line staff. We constantly iterate. Our work starts small, is tested and evolves based on users’ feedback. We make things open. We want to share, learn and adapt. We work in partnership with digital health and care teams and across organisational boundaries.
