NSGCCE Website Relaunch

Today our website has been re-launched and is a vast improvement on the old. Over recent months it became harder and harder to maintain and the only way around this was to start again. Some things have gone and others improved. We hope that you like the changes. Please let us know what you think. All the emails and web addresses still work so you can just carry on as normal. Amanda is still on Twitter so you still have direct contact with us and, through us, to the professionals. Our thanks to everyone involved, especially to Amanda for guiding the project, Chin Ling for doing all the conversion work and to the University of Nottingham for all the help and assistance they provided.

Now that we have a new home for our website, some of the links in the blog may not work. I am going through each entry as quickley as I can, newest to oldest, to find the broken links but this takes time. If there is information that you need now and it is behind a broken link then please let me know at and I will jump it up the list.

Audio Patient Information Leaflets Launch

Today we have great pleasure in launching our latest project, Audio Patient Information Leaflets (APILS). To compliment the current batch of printable PILS, we have started to transfer them into audio format. As this takes about 3 hours for each one they will be trickle fed onto the system so keep looking. The first three are available now.

Welcome to the new website for the Nottingham Support Group for Carers of Children with Eczema

Its been a while in the making but now it’s here. We think that it is a real improvement on the old site format which had served us very very well since 18 July 2005. Over the years the site has been prodded and poked with bits being added and bits being taken away, all of which has led to quite an unwieldy administrative task just to maintain it. So, out with the old and in with the new. We have added a number of new features as well as keeping the old faithful's.

Today we have some new features to share:

The questions that have been asked of our experts over the last year and answered exclusively to those on the Email Alert Service. You really should be on it!

Video Podcasts. These are videos of interviews given about the effects of being an eczema sufferer

Our profiles pages have been updated

We also have a page dedicated to the NICE guidelines relevant to eczema

The RSS and Audio feeds have been brought into the site.

The menus have been redesigned as well. At the top of each page is the title and above that are the 5 main groups. Below the title are the pages in that group. This means that you are never more than 2 clicks away from any page on the site.

We have also incorporated some selected pages from the National Eczema Society

We hope that you will use our sit to its fullest and any feedback would be warmly welcomed. Feedback can be left via the Contact Us page.

Thank you for your continued support. It really is appreciated. To enter the site, please click the Home Page link above. Its the "N" in the banner.

New Site Search Facility

Another facility has just been added to the website to make life a little easier to find what you are looking for. It is now possible to do a site search. On almost all pages at the top right is a search box and all you need to do is put in some search criteria. Try it and see what happens! In this upgrade we have also improved the security code on the contact us page. I hope that you will agree it is a lot more human friendly than before.
