Implementing the Accessible Information Standard in a digital NHS Bookmark and Share Button

25 January 2017

AbilityNet is hosting a workshop in London, on 28 February, to consider the role that digital technology plays in the NHS Accessible Information Standard.

Many disabled people find that communicating with large institutions like the NHS can be difficult, frustrating or at times impossible. First published in 2015, The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) was created to ensure that disabled people have a better experience when accessing information from the NHS and adult social care providers. NHS England is currently reviewing the implementation of the AIS. 

Ahead of the consultation, which closes 10 March 2017, AbilityNet are bringing together patient groups, NHS practitioners and the digital accessibility community for a half-day, interactive event to:

  • Understand where digital accessibility fits within patient communications
  • Share the results of disabled user-testing on the technology used by GPs and the lessons learned
  • Learn first-hand from disabled people’s experiences and identify best practice for the design and delivery of digital communications that meet the AIS.

In the final session a panel of expert speakers will provide the opportunity for a detailed discussion on the AIS.

Numbers are strictly limited so please contact AbilityNet if you would like to attend.
