Examples of our favourite web designs from the health care sector

We have done some digging and found five health care websites that showcase great design aesthetics.


Better Health Channel

With a full-screen homepage featuring well-placed logos and crisp greens on a background of autumn colours, Better Health Channel has immediate consumer appeal. The Victorian Government site has two options for users to view information: a banner with clear drop-down menus, or simply scroll down until you find what you want.  There are plenty of interactive buttons on the site that allow viewers to upload photos, leave feedback, download free apps or connect via Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.


One Medical


The One Medical site features high-quality images, beginning with video footage across the homepage of an average One Medical office. Prospective clients will find plenty of information by scrolling through the site, and the primary information for patients who have to visit a doctor quickly, presents in high-visibility ‘call to actions.’ The site has fresh colours and graphics but still feels warm and approachable.


Nudge Psychology


We love Nudge Psychology‘s gorgeous health care website that is visually attractive, well designed and highly responsive. In fact it is visually nicer to use on a mobile phone which makes sense as people access goods and services via their mobile devices more than any other platform these days. The images cover the entire screen with a discreet navigation banner across the top of the page. Scroll down or click on navigation menu for a visual feast of fabulous images, contrasting primary colours and geometric shapes. Information is succinct, with contact buttons available on each page. There are also Twitter and Facebook buttons, and a You Tube channel linked to the site.


Redbrick Health


Healthy, outdoorsy images and a colourful vector-based design make Redbrick Health a user-friendly and attractive site to navigate. The homepage has a scrolling full-width bar with ‘call to action’ buttons for each image, making it easy to listen to participant stories, and find out about research and health plans from the moment you land on the site. The site has easy to find Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and RSS Feed buttons, and a drop-down menu that is clearly set out for ease of use.  The site’s certified Redbrick Ready is an innovative example of full device and app integration for an array of health services, including Virtual Health Coaching, assessments, and advice.


Family Psychology Practice


Last, but certainly not least, we showcase one of our own health care website designs for Dr Emma Butler, a family and children’s psychology practice. Created with a full-width homepage that feels both homely and uncluttered due to warm, earthy graphics and clearly compartmentalised sections. The site features two blogs and offers a variety of ways to contact the centre, and interact with the information provided. The aim of the design is accessibility, achieved through relaxed language and user-friendly navigation.

If you are a health care professional launching a health care website; try to make sure that your web design includes relevant, accessible information, easy to find contact details and credentials, and a responsiveness and style that is welcoming, instils confidence and trust. Keeping these basics in mind will help drive more traffic from the web to your practice door.
