Local Cancer Intelligence

My role: UX Designer

The project: Local Cancer Intelligence helps professionals understand the changing cancer population within a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in England. It also shows how this compares within Cancer Alliances for some of the data sets available on the tool.


I've worked with the stakeholders to improve the search and filters to improve the usability of the website on desktop and mobile.

After design exploration workshops I've created a new proposal with principle to test. I've made a prototype and I've conducted usability test with 7 people between students and NHS professionals. The users had positive feedback regarding the new interactions and search.

Thanks to an increase of the mobile use from av of 5% up to nearly 30% later in the year, we focused on improving the UX on the mobile experience.
