Community - Backlog of components and patterns

The service manual is built on the research and experience of many digital teams in the NHS. We have a shared backlog and encourage people to contribute.

Anyone can propose, develop or contribute to new components or patterns, or suggest improvements to ones that already exist.

Here is a list of the components, patterns and updates currently on the service manual community backlog. They can be:

  • proposed - someone has suggested a new component or pattern
  • to do - the proposed component or pattern has been agreed and is ready to work on
  • in progress - someone is actively working on the component or pattern

You can see the full backlog in GitHub. You’ll need a GitHub account to view the backlog or any of the entries on this page.
