NHS Choices is currently being redeveloped and its resources are focussed on transforming the existing site content so that it better meets users’ needs and helps connect people to appropriate healthcare services.

This means that the creation of significant new content, including in relation to rarer conditions such as Williams syndrome, will be on hold for the foreseeable future.

As part of its transformation programme, NHS Choices is considering whether it might best cater for such conditions by referring users to existing reliable sources that already provide good quality information. In the case of Williams syndrome, this will be sites such as those provided by the National Organization for Rare Disorders and the Williams Syndrome Association.
