Description: The NHS.UK programme is transforming the website NHS Choices, and designing a digital service that better connects patients to the information and services that they need. The user is at the heart of everything that we do.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: A digital delivery team has been working on establishment activities since April 2016. To date, we have undertaken extensive end user research to validate the proposed approach and completed the Alpha build. The SRO has just completed the development of the NHS.uk Visual Proposition to illustrate the vision for the future of NHS.UK as an integrated online platform that brings NHS services direct to patients, when, how and where they need them. A new Programme Director has been in place since July and the NHS.uk and NHS Choices programme teams are being brought together under this single leadership. The programme has continued to develop its Business Case with a view to submission for formal approval in the new year.
Start date: 2016-04-01
End date: 2020-12-31
Schedule text: The project lifecycle aligns with the parliamentary cycle and we are working to develop the Business Case to define more clearly the deliverables, schedule and costs over this period. In the short term, the schedule to March 2017 has been set contingent on investment approval and our ability to recruit the necessary skills. The programme recognises that there is a shortage of the necessary skills within the delivery organisation, however this is being addressed by the development of the new Digital Resource Pool, working closely with the Head of Profession to ensure skills gaps are identified and filled.
