When to use pagination
Use pagination at the bottom of the page to allow users to navigate around a small group of related pages (up to 8 pages), for example a group of pages about a specific condition.
If you're using pagination, you should also use a contents list at the top of the page. The 2 components make up the multi-page navigation pattern.
When not to use pagination
Do not use pagination on pages which aren't grouped together or "related" as this is likely to confuse users.
Do not use pagination in a transactional service or a form. We use other components instead, including:
- buttons to move forward
- back link to navigate back
