Another one in the mold of gov.uk, but with slightly less typographic finesse. Still, it would be a benefit to citizens if more municipal / government websites were this simple.
How is that a government website can figure out how to make an unobtrusive cookie notice, while all the slick tech startups with swish websites have to slap you in the face with a garish alert-style banner?
This government website probably have it in its spec at the beginning of the project, most of others website are bloated afterwards with it.
God bless our NHS.
That remind me of the (YES) amazing website www.gov.uk
Do you mind sharing us the challenges you'd faced when designing big government sites like this one? From UX perspective, what do we need to consider compared to designing for commercial sites?
I love the simplicity of the site, and it loads super fast even here (Sydney)! I have never done any government sites so would love your insight :D
I didn't design it (I would have used a Show DN badge instead), I'm just sharing the link. But I'd love to be working on a site like this.
Faz, this could be of some help: https://design-system.service.gov.uk/
Isn't within the same context of government, but this will probably help. Read through some of their articles.

Ya sounds like you didn't read anything of what I posted.
Maybe you should before posting comments.
I was I could just take a peek in their Hotjar account for a few sessions.
For a government website, it seems they've done absolutely nothing about accessibility.
Edit: 45 page errors, 193 potential problems on https://achecker.ca when running a WCAG2.0 test on the landing page. It looks pretty but come on guys.
What do you mean?
Is he being sarcastic?
Do you have an example?
45 page errors, 193 potential problems on https://achecker.ca when running a WCAG2.0 test on the landing page.
By no means a comprehensive audit but on a random inner content page (https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/) lighthouse scored it 93. That seems a reasonable score to me.
I like how you can navigate through practically the whole website by using the TAB key.
That's called accessibility :)
I disagree with you, I think from a UX perspective this is one of the best examples someone could bring to the table. There aren't any clear gimmicks, but it's extremely compliant when it comes to accessibility standards.
how on earth do you figure?
Just looking through the errors under 1.4 for colour contrast. These are all false because Achecker doesn't check for specificity so those colour combinations never happen.
Have you actually checked the output from achecker? I had a quick look and already it is saying things about colour contrast issues that don't appear on the page itself.
The NHS site comes from the GDS (Government Digital Service) team who have been working hard on IA and accessibility for years. https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/government-digital-service
