Accessible Information Standard

Making health care information accessible

The aim of the accessible information standard is to make sure that people with a medical condition which affects their ability to communicate, get information that they can access and understand, and have any communication support they might need

The standard tells organisations how to make information accessible to people in the format they need, as well as support people’s communication needs, for example by offering support from a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, deafblind manual interpreter or an advocate

NHS England has produced the resources below, in July 2015 to provide an update on the accessible information standard:
Accessible Information Standard (PDF)
Accessible Information Standard (easy read) (PDF)
Accessible Information Standard - British Sign Language (video and subtitles) (YouTube video)
Accessible Information Standard (audio) (MP3)

We want to make sure that we are communicating with you in a way that is easy for you and that you can understand:

  • We want to know if you need information in a specific format e.g. braille, large print or easy read
  • We want to know if you need to receive information in a particular way e.g. electronically, via email, for use with a screen reader
  • We want to know if you need someone to support you at appointments e.g. a sign language interpreter or an advocate
  • We want to know if you lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool
