It's best to have a design team of just 2-3 people (or less) because experience
shows that with more people involved the time taken to make decisions causes
significant delays in the project. Please send as much information as you can
about your practice/clinic. If you can fax any practice leaflets/brochures that
would be very useful. Please provide pictures by email in jpeg format (the
requirements for the photos would be as for taking any good picture, e.g. good
lighting etc.) and email information about your clinic so it can all be added to
the site. You will have to tell us what you wish to see on your site and
what you want it to be able to achieve. Please don't be afraid to ask questions.
