The Standard sets the framework and provides clear direction for a dramatic improvement in the ability of the NHS and adult social care system to meet the information and communication support needs of disabled people.
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 and understand and with support so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services.
NHS England has produced information in various formats which summaries what organisations are required to do to comply with the Accessible Information Standard. If you require this information in an alternative format click below:
Morecambe Bay CCG wants to ensure that the information we communicate is fair and accessible to all sections of our local communities. Patients, the public and staff can request reasonable adjustments such as information converted into other formats for easier reading.
In addition, you may require additional support to contact the CCG, a British Sign Language interpreter to support you or you may need language support where your first spoken language is not English.
To make our website more accessible the CCG's website includes computer software called BrowseAloud. It can help anyone who has difficulty reading online including people with mild visual impairments, limited reading abilities where English is not their first language or a learning disability such as dyslexia.
