The Welsh Paediatric Society (WPS) was founded in 1973 to provide a political and social network for Welsh Paediatricians, to promote good practice and research, and just as importantly to provide friendship and goodwill. Website Express was awarded the project to deliver the WPS a new website and the chosen CMS was Drupal. They previously used Drupal 6 so they were familiar with the system.

Drupal Case Study For The Welsh Paediatric Society
The Welsh Paediatric Society (WPS) provides paediatricians across Wales and surrounding areas with the opportunity to share knowledge, undertake research and to provide the best possible paediatric and child health service. They have approximately 200 members so it was important the website was easy accessible and equally as easy to use.
In addition, they required a refreshed web and digital presence that was more responsive and usable, across all devices. The society felt that it was time to utilise automated functions, via the website, to reduce the administration of member registration and event booking.
- A more flexible, mobile friendly site
- Streamlined event booking function
- Online membership management including registration, and tiered pricing
- Easier reporting for site administrators
- Automated event feedback
Their staff enjoyed the ease-of-use and content administration that Drupal provided and so were very happy to have a new website built using Drupal 7.
The structure of the previous website had not been well architected and so a decision was made early on in the planning process to build a new Drupal 7 based website from scratch.
