COMMERCIAL: South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has launched a website, described by the firm which designed it as the first “responsive” site of any NHS trust.

A statement said: “South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust has launched a new responsive website, the first of its type for a UK NHS Trust.  Designed by Harrogate-based Mixd, the site reacts to the browser or device on which it is being used – ensuring that it remains as clear and accessible to a mobile user ‘on the go’ as it does on a full-sized desktop screen. 

“Research undertaken with South Tees patients indicated that their use of the Trust’s website was biased towards situations when people were likely to be on the move – such as when travelling to a hospital for an appointment or during a medical emergency.  Therefore the site was built from the outset using a ‘mobile first’ strategy.”
