Simplifying the user journey
The Christie is Europe’s largest single site cancer treatment centre, treating more than 44,000 patients a year. The Christie website houses a huge amount of information, from world-class research to patient information and charity events - providing a hugely important source of information and support for patients, carers and staff alike.
anything collaborated with Music to create a more ‘audience focused’ website, which better reflected The Christies international status. A key requirement of the website was to vastly enhance the user experience, making it much easier and quicker for users to find and to read relevant information.
Taking place over a year, the project included an extensive research phase, with focus groups, surveys, interviews and user testing with more than 200 hospital staff and volunteers.
With such a wide reaching and diverse audience, it was imperative that we supported ‘older’ browsers too - including older versions of Internet Explorer. We generated two CSS style sheets, one for older browsers and another for more modern browsers. Working in this way ensured that we were not restricted with the build and as a result we were able to stay true to the design across all browsers.
