Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard aims to make sure that disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need.
Should you have any requirements or know of a patient who needs support please let the Practice know and we will help provide support whether that is by providing information in large print or putting a patient in touch with British Sign Language (BSL), an interpreter, email or braille.
Further information can be obtained on the NHS website: www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo
Charities including Action on Hearing Loss, CHANGE, Sense and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) will also be able to provide further support.
We will be collecting this information initially for new patients on registering, and for patients who are known to the practice to have a disability which requires communication via a specific method.
If you require a specific method of communication because of a disability, please inform the practice as soon as possible to ensure this information is recorded or complete the Accessible Information Standard Form below. You can also download the form here. Please fill it in then hand in at reception.

All Information submitted through secure forms is secured with a private key known only to the GP practice and is
accessed over a secure connection by nominated Practice staff. Our practice has a strict confidentiality policy.
