Accessible Information Standard – Making health and social care information accessible

All organisations that provide NHS care and / or publicly-funded adult social care are legally required to follow the Accessible Information Standard. The Standard sets out a specific, consistent approach to identifying, recording, flagging, sharing and meeting the information and communication support needs of patients, service users, carers and parents with a disability, impairment or sensory loss.

Overview of the Standard

We have produced a short summary document which provides an overview of the Standard for patients, service users, carers and parents. This is available in a range of formats.
