The new Accessible Information Standard was agreed on 24th June 2015 and all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care must follow the standard in full by 31st July 2016.
Stockbridge Surgery are waiting on literature and guidance being provided by NHS England and our Clinical Systems supplier.
The Accessible Information Standard aims to make sure that disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need.
The standard tells organisations how to make information accessible to the following people:
- Service Users
- Their Carers and parents
This includes making sure that people get information in different formats if they need it, such as:
- Large print
- Easy read
- via email
