We support the NHS Accessible Information Standard, and endeavour to identify, share and meet any of our patients' special communication requirements.
the website http://www.easyhealth.org.uk has a variety of useful leaflets in accessible formats.
The accessible information standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss, receive information 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.
Individuals most likely to be affected by the Standard include people who are blind or deaf, who have some hearing and/or visual loss, and people with a learning disability. However, this list is not exhaustive.
If you feel that this applies to you or someone in your care, please collect a form from surgery, we will then do our best to meet these needs.
