Beta services

When we test and improve new services on our site, we call it a ‘beta service’.

What is a beta service?

We are working on developing new digital services. During the beta phase, services are being worked on, tested and improved. It means that not all parts of the service will be available to everyone.

Sometimes a beta service may be available at the same time as an older existing service. You can choose which one you want to use.

When a beta service is successful it will eventually become ‘live’ and replace older services.
