As part of their forward thinking web strategy, the NHS commissioned these interactive widgets to replace Flash based versions which were now starting to show their age.
Flash widgets for the web have a natural (and well established) workflow, which enable them to be built and embedded by a designer, independent from the web page around them.
The widgets have now been built in such a way that they can be “embedded” anywhere on a page using just a few lines of code, similar to the way we would embed Flash content.
They can be reused and customised using parameters, all from the same codebase.
NHS were extremely pleased with their first ever rich media web content to be built with web standards, and are planning to commission several more in the future.
