The HealthTalk.org website homepage

healthtalk.org, an initiative by charity Dipex, is a site which shares the video stories of  people living with a wide variety of conditions. Users can discover first hand what it is like to suffer from these illnesses.

 

The old healthtalk site had been written in a little-used and unusual CMS, meaning the data was structured in a way which was incompatible with WordPress design. It was Ash’s task to plan and oversee the successful extraction and migration of the data into WordPress – a significant challenge. This was bespoke work; Ash was satisfied with the result, as was the client.

Whilst working on healthtalk.org, Ash was also able to gain insight into a condition he himself had developed, of which he has been able to gain little real understanding. As a result he came to fully appreciate the power of the work Dipex is offering in the form of direct narrative from fellow sufferers, bringing valuable help and support.
