NHS styled blocks for WordPress using the Gutenberg editor, based on the excellent work from the NHSUK Frontend Library. These blocks mean your WordPress site can offer the latest care cards, site promos and info panels to your users, and that all of this content will be styled to match the NHS branding guidelines.
This plugin is designed principally for use by NHS organisations, but can be used by anybody.
