Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard aims to make sure that disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need.

They are as followed:

Take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals.

Take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours.

Imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week.

Be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient.

Should you have any requirements or know of a patient who needs support please let the Practice know and we will help provide support whether that is by providing information in large print or putting a patient in touch with British Sign Language (BSL), an interpreter, email or braille.

Further information can be obtained on the NHSWebsite below:

Charities including Action on Hearing Loss, CHANGE, Sense and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) will also be able to provide further support.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Practice if you have any questions.
