Health prescribes new website for itself

The Department of Health has relaunched its website, claiming the new version will be easier to use.

In a statement, the Department said content had been reorganised and rewritten so it was easier to understand; search functions and navigation had been improved; and a process of consolidating all other Health websites into the new website had begun.

“Some of our health topics are complete. Others will link back to our old website until we move them here,” the Department said.

“When we’re finished, our old website will be archived to the National Library of Australia web archive. In the meantime, you can use the search function to find information that’s either on this site or our old website.”

The Department said it designed and built the new website following the Digital Transformation Agency’s Service design and delivery process and Digital Service Standard.

“In doing so we made you — our website users — our number one priority,” it said.

“We asked you what you wanted from our new website and listened to what you didn’t like about our old one, and the result is a new, modern and responsive website that will deliver the health, ageing and sport information you need now and into the future,” the Department said.

The new website can be accessed at this PS News link.
