"We intend to ensure that all components in Turas applications are derived from one source (the Turas style guide) and our aim is for that source to be fully accessible. "
Colin Sanders, Principal Lead (Experience)
The UX team has been busy working on the new style guide for the last year and it has been implemented on new products such as:

We have short term plans to implement the style guide on older Turas products such as:

We also have it embedded and implemented on upcoming products such as:
Proposed timetable of change:
The style guide is not perfect. In parallel with implementing it on older applications we plan to continue to improve components with regards to accessibility and have these pushed out to replace existing components.
New components will also be introduced in an accessible format from now on.
Furthermore, we plan to continue the work we have started in creating contacts of users who can advise us and help us test the accessibility of specific journeys through applications.
Over the last year we have worked with screen reader users and sought advice from dyslexic members of NHS staff on the usability of prototypes and wireframes.
We want to continue and expand on this source of valuable information.
