Accessible Information Standard - Consultation
Making health and social care information accessible
From 1st August 2016 onwards, all organisations that provide NHS care or adult social 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 are provided with information that they can easily read or understand and with support so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services.
Post-implementation review – have your say
In early 2017, NHS England is reviewing the Standard to assess the impact and to ensure that it is ‘fit for purpose’. The review is looking at:
- how organisations have implemented the Standard;
- the impact of the Standard, including organisations’ and service users’ experiences;
- any aspects of the Standard which need updating or clarifying
