Develop solutions quickly using our style guide, user interface (UI) framework and code packages.


Illustration of a tool kit with a cloud floating aboveSecure, resilient and consistent digital solutions are crucial to safe and effective patient care. The NDP application development framework is a collection of components that make this possible.

The components include:

Style guide

The style guide was developed with users, and tested in different health and care settings. It includes reusable, accessible components that are compliant with WCAG 2.1, level AA guidelines.

Code packages

Several code packages were developed that speed up development, and drive consistency. These include:

  • a user interface framework
  • identity management
  • common code helpers

Why use it?

We have done the hard work, so you don’t have to. Using the NDP application development framework, you can build accessible, responsive web applications. 

Who can use it?

The NDP application development framework is for people who deliver technology solutions, to improve health and social care in Scotland.

There is an application and governance process to use the service, that the NDP team can support you with.
