Sandyford is the specialist sexual health service for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

We completed a full design and UX overhaul for Sandyford that delivered a clean, modern and accessible experience for all users.

Incorporating a family of six sites, Sandyford has numerous audiences with varied and unique requirements, all managed from a single CMS.  In addition to the main organisation, we included websites for Young People @ Sandyford, The Steve Retson Project, Archway, Brownlee HIV and the Free Condom project.

Catering for all users

From September 2020, all public sector websites are required by law to be accessible to a level of AA or higher.

The Sandyford website conforms to WCAG 2.1 guidelines meaning the content is accessible to the widest possible audience.

Find the right service

The site features a number of simple self-help tools to guide the user to the right content, or an appropriate contact point.

Sandyford provide services and support across such a wide range of areas, it was identified early that users could become confused by competing messages across the site. 

This stimulated a plan to include simple tools at key points that could help the user navigate by answering some simple questions.

Information accessible to everyone

The design ensured all key accessibility measures were included.  Text size, colour contrast, button spacing and the behind-the-scenes technical implementation.

We also incorporated Userway’s accessibility technology which is the world’s most advanced AI-powered accessibility compliance solution.  This provides additional options in contrast and colour combinations, that may not be supported by a client browser.

What Sandyford thought

The new site looks modern, eye-catching, user friendly, up to date and very comprehensive. I was a bit pessimistic as other organisations have made efforts to improve their websites and have got it completely wrong. Congratulations on getting the project completed so effectively.
