NHS Forth Valley

A cutting edge iOS and Android app developed for NHS Forth Valley, allowing Forth Valley residents to quickly and discretely place orders for contraception on their smartphone.

NHS Forth Valley were looking for a mobile Application to help monitor and facilitate their free condom distribution scheme and promote and support on-going delivery of the outcomes of the National Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Framework (2015 - 2020). Designed to promote healthy dialogue on sexual health whilst retaining discretion on an often sensitive topic of conversation, the App was commissioned to collect data whilst also support priority population groups including young people under 21, those living with HIV or BBVs, injecting drug users, and sex industry workers amongst others. 

Positioning this service whilst contributing an informational and support framework in the right tone befitting of the NHS Forth Valley was important, and Mucky Puddle were commissioned to design and develop the project through our expert and professional service.

The App

The mobile app is designed around the NHS Central Sexual Health branding. Providing the service quickly and efficiently meant significance on keeping the interface uncluttered and easy to use. An easy to use workflow combined with video content, responsive layouts and 3rd party system integration makes this app seamless for users and easy for administrators. This also helped convey the overarching tone of the NHS making the service simple and easy to undersand. 

Once completed, the finished app has since been lauded by program managers for its simplicity, and service users are already switching over from traditional channels.

Bespoke Build

Handling thousands of device types across two platforms can be a challenge, but our cross-platform tools made it easy to reach our audience no matter the phone they use.

Friendly & Functional

Besides looking good and working great, the app adapts to whether it's a new or returning user, and remembers their details for future orders.
