Complete our Accessible Information Standard Survey

Do you always receive medical information in a format accessible to you?

The NHS introduced the Accessible Information Standard five years ago to ensure that all health information should be made available in the most accessible format for each patient, e.g. information and communications in braille, large print, audio, email, etc.

Sadly, this is not always the case. The impact of COVID-19 has only further highlighted the difficulties faced by blind and partially sighted people when accessing healthcare information.

Do you experience barriers to receiving medical information?

We want to learn about your experiences with accessible NHS information. Let us know in our short survey developed by our Sight Loss Councils with the support of Thomas Pocklington Trust.
