Today we issued a notice to formally withdraw the out-of-date NHS Common User Interface standards. I've written a blog post explaining why
The intent behind the CUI was good. By standardising the design of key user interface elements, its creators hoped to improve patient safety and usability
Unfortunately, the CUI has not changed with the times. Its content has not been updated since the closure of NHS Connecting for Health in 2013 and is now hosted by the National Archives
We plan to keep some data formats that are still relevant but to separate them from out-of-date assumptions about presentation
In the meantime, we're keen to hear from anyone with an interest in what, if anything, should replace the CUI
