Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard is a new ‘information standard’ for implementation by all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care.

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that people who have a disability or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille or via email, and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language interpreter.You can find more information about the NHS Accessible Information Standard on NHS England’s website.
