Have your say about accessible information

Posted: Thursday 09 February 2017

Patients are being encouraged to give their views on the standard of accessible information provided by health and social care services.

Last year all organisations that provide NHS care or adult social care were legally required to follow the Accessible Information Standard.

The standard aims to ensure people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are provided with information they can easily read or understand.

NHS England is reviewing the Standard to assess the impact and to ensure that it is ‘fit for purpose’.

The review is looking at:

  • the impact of the Standard
