Accessible Information

What is the Accessible Information Standard?
The Accessible Information Standard is a new information standard for implementation by all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care, which include GP surgeries and NHS hospitals.

What do we mean by accessible information?
We know that not everyone communicates in the same way; for example some people read using braille or need larger print, others will use sign language or audio recordings. We need to ensure that we communicate with you in a way that meets your individual needs.

What does it aim to do?
The standard aims to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand and professional communication support if they need it.
