Web Design for Health Marketing
Web design helps patients find and trust you. In today's digital society, patients are well informed healthcare consumers. They are actively checking out your profile: your website, your Facebook Page, your latest blog articles or YouTube videos. Patient behaviour still includes conversations with a GP about a referral to a specialist. But decisions are influenced by the quality of your online presence as a specialist doctor or a healthcare professional. The design - both on mobiles and on computers - defines whether a patient will stay or not. Capturing a prospective patient's attention is about web design, and about an integrated strategy with your copy and content.
All aspects of your medical web design play together: from the fonts and background colours, to the chosen pictures. If you are an orthopaedic surgeon helping young athletes, we include images that resonate with the target patient demographic. That's how we make your site more relevant to them and more interesting to stay and explore.
The Digital Practice design team builds on years of experience designing websites for a variety of healthcare specialists. We have refined our techniques, researched and optimised our design formulas, and our best practices focus on attracting patients, capturing their attention, and helping them to stay on the site long enough to trust you and take action.

What Makes a Medical Website Design Stand out?
Some of the golden rules of web design for doctors and health practices:
- Help the user grasp the story of each page in a visual way.
- Use enough space between different elements on your page
- Use consistent typography
- Align site elements so they appeal to the eye
- Choose sharp images and make sure that all graphics have the right pixel resolution
- Select complementary colours and respect a strict colour palette and a brand styleguide
- Make sure that your site is responsive and works on mobile devices
Within 6 to 12 weeks after our initial consultation - depending on any other package components you may include in your order - we launch your new website so you can boost your patient acquisition. In combination with a content strategy built on our experience with SEO for Doctors, or with a Social Media campaign.
