Since 1st August 2016, all NHS organisations have been legally required to follow the Accessible Information Standard (AIS).
The standard aims to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are provided with information that they can easily read or understand and with support so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services.
We are committed towards meeting the information and communication support needs of disabled people, improving outcomes and experiences and providing safer and more personalised care and services.
