Tell us about your Communication needs – (The Accessible Information Standard)

Posted on December 5th, 2017

Do you have Communication needs – Can we Help ?
The Accessible Information Standard requires GP practices to ask people if they have any information or communication needs and find out how to support them. If you need assistance with communication due to hearing, visual problems etc please let us know how best we can help you. We will then have  a duty to ensure that with your permission we share people’s information and communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care. Our aim is to ensure that people receive information which they can access and understand, for example: in large print, braille or via email, and to receive communication support if they need it.

Why must organisations follow the standard?

Organisations must follow the standard by law. This is explained in Section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

More information

There is more information about the accessible information standard, including the Specification and Implementation Guidance, on the NHS England website at www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo

More information, including more information in alternative formats, will be published on the NHS England website during summer and autumn 2015. Charities including Action on Hearing Loss, CHANGE, Sense, and the Royal National Institute of Blind people (RNIB) will also be publishing information.

The ‘Information Standards Notice’ which is the formal document which tells organisations that they must follow the standard is published on the Health and Social Care Information Centre website at www.hscic.gov.uk/isce/publication/scci1605

For more information please email NHS England at england.nhs.participation@nhs.net or call 01138 253002. Or you can write to Accessible Information Standard, NHS England, 7E56, Quarry House, Quarry Hill, Leeds, LS2 7UE.
