As with printed communications, colour can be used in electronic media to add interest and appeal while staying true to the NHS look and feel.
The NHS web colour palette uses a different specification system to the print colour palette. For example, within the web colour palette, NHS Blue (Pantone® 300) is displayed using the hexadecimal format, HTML 0066CC. The web palette also allows for RGB variations in electronic presentations.
You should only ever use the NHS web colour palette for electronic publishing.
Do not use tints of any of the web palette colours.
