An Accessible Information Standard policy aims to ensure that those with a disability receive accessible health and social care information.

Organisations that provide care in England are required by law to follow the Standard. This includes NHS Trusts, GP practices and Local Government. 

Being able to communicate effectively with patients can not only support adherence to the Standard, but also improve safety and outcomes for patients.

10 percent of the population is affected by a learning disability, and a further 8 percent speak languages other than English.  More than 60 NHS Trusts are already using Browsealoud to help meet the Accessible Information Standard.
