For all organisations that offer NHS or Adult Social Care, compliance with The Accessible Information Standard became law on the 31st July 2016. The Standard aims to provide people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss with information about their healthcare in a way they can easily understand.
We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. It is therefore our aim, where possible, to provide our patients with information in a format that is easily understood. For example, if you would prefer us to write to you in a larger font, then we can do this on request. If you require an interpreter to attend a consultation, with sufficient notice, we can arrange this. Furthermore, we are exploring with NHS England the options around providing information in braille.
We want to know if we can support you to lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool.
