From August 2016 all organisations that provide NHS care are legally required to follow the Accessible Information Standard. The standard aims to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss get information that they can access and understand, and any communication support that they need from health and care services.
More information on the Accessible Information Standard can be found on the NHS England website.
A video about the Accessible information standard can be viewed here.
Further resources about the Standard including toolkits, guidance and quizzes can be found on a microsite designed by NHS Brent, Harrow and Hillingdon Clinical Commissioning Group: www.brentaccessibleinformation.nhs.uk
On request, the CCG can provide any of our information in a wide range of formats including:
- large print / different coloured paper or text
- recorded onto a tape
- alternative language
- Easy Read
