NHS digital service manual show and tell
We live-streamed the show and tell but the original video quality was not very good. This video has the presentation slides with the live audio.
The team talks about the redesign of the service manual, how to write good questions for forms, inclusive language, the beta service standard for health and the NHS Digital accessibility lab in Leeds. The NHS Leadership Academy also share a Wordpress theme based on the NHS.UK frontend library.
