Premise

User can enter their postcode into a postcode search module, taking them to the BBC NHS Winter landing page and showing them the details of their nearest hospital. They can see whether or not their hospital is hitting governmental targets.

Critical reception

Nominated for several awards.

Technical details

The postcode search module uses an API to return the nearest local authority, which is cross-referenced with a predefined JSON data structure representing the hospitals in England. The nearest 3 hospitals are returned to the main application.

The app then renders numerous figures and charts to show the user whether or not their nearest hospital is hitting its targets.

Main app is fully responsive, triggered by URL parameters, makes good use of the observer pattern.
