This is a Website accessibility statement about the Notts Health Informatics Service website.

 

Using this website

This website is run by the Notts Health Informatics Service. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:

  • You can't modify the line height or spacing of text
  • Most older PDF documents aren’t fully accessible to screen reader software

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Notts Health Informatics Service is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Issues with technology

It’s not possible for users to modify text spacing or line height.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing these issues and believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when we next do a major redevelopment of the website, likely to be in September 2020.

Issues with PDFs and other documents

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be marked up so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
