Accessible Information Standard

THE ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION STANDARD STARTED ON ON 1ST APRIL 2016.

The accessible Information Standard is a new law to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.

The Accessible Information Standard tells NHS and adult social care organisations they must make sure people get information in different formats such as:

  • easy read
  • braille
  • advocate
  • British sign language
  • large print
  • email

THESE ARE 5 REQUIREMENTS OF THE STANDARD THAT WE MUST DO:

  • Ask people if they have any information or communication needs and how to meet these.
  • record those needs clearly and in a set way
  • highlight or flag the persons file or notes so it is clear they have communication needs and how to meet these needs.
  • share information about people's information or communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care when they have consent or permission to do so
  • take steps to make sure people receive information which they can access, understand and receive communication support if they need it.
