NHS WordPress Theme

‘Bevan’ our NHS WordPress Theme

Bevan is our NHS WordPress open-source starter/boilerplate theme which we are currently developing as a free community resource based on our experience working with NHS customers.

NHS Theme Demo

You can take our NHS Theme for a test drive here. Please remember this is still WIP and subject to change!

Technical Overview

We’re hard at work going through the NHS Front End Library to make components that can be re-used in WordPress all wrapped around a basic boilerplate theme.

Components Overview

Check out our planned Components over on GitHub, for example:

  • Styled Core Gutenberg Blocks
  • Custom Gutenberg blocks
  • Forms Elements
  • etc…

The aim is to have this library available as WordPress Blocks (Gutenberg) and we’re using our popular ‘Block Stater Kit‘ to help power any WordPress project.

What’s changed at Make Do since the COVID-19 lockdown?

4 weeks ago the UK was locked down because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a challenging few weeks for a small agency like ours but we’ve managed to adapt quickly to the change and remain productive in the ‘new normal’.
