Are NHS and social care organisations making information accessible?

13/02/2017

The Accessible Information Standard exists to provide people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss with information that they can easily read or understand. as well as any communication support that they need.

 This includes making sure that information is available in different formats, such as large print, braille, easy read or via email. It also requires appropriate support to be available, such as a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, deafblind manual interpreter or an advocate.

All organisations that provide NHS or adult social care are required to follow the new standard, including NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts, and GP practices.
