NHS England: Accessible Information Standard Review Report

25 July 2017
Source: NHS England

The Accessible Information Standard sets out requirements for organisations to identify, record, flag, share and meet the information and communication needs of people with a disability, impairment or sensory loss.

All organisations that provide NHS care and / or publicly-funded adult social care must follow the Standard in full from 1st August 2016 onwards.

During January-March 2017 NHS England led a review of the Standard to assess impact and check that it is ‘fit for purpose’. Over 1600 people had their say and a report has now been published, and is available from the NHS England website (http://www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo) in a range of formats including:

Accessible Information Standard Review Report (Word)

Accessible Information Standard Review Report (British Sign Language video with subtitles)

Accessible Information Standard Review Report (Easy Read)

The report is also available on request as a paper copy, including in large print and easy read, in braille, on audio CD and BSL DVD.
If you have any queries, or would like to request a copy of the report in an alternative format, please contact england.patientsincontrol@nhs.net. Patients, service users, carers and members of the public can also call 0300 311 22 33.
