Common User Interface (CUI)

The design of common methods to use healthcare IT systems relies on standards and guidance. Core objectives include increasing patient safety, the clinical take-up of health IT and reducing training costs.

Please note that our CUI content is no longer updated, but remains good practice.

For user interface guidance please visit our CUI archive.

For standards and collections, please visit the Standardisation Committee for Care Information.

For any queries, please contact NHS Digital.
