The NHS Accessible Information Standard comes into effect on 31st July
The purpose of the NHS Accessible Information Standard is to ensure that healthcare providers communicate with patients, service users and their carers in an accessible manner. For blind or low vision people, this includes the provision of alternative format materials to meet their needs - such as braille, large print, or audio. Information leaflets, appointment letters, after care details, medical records; ALL communications must be available in a format requested by the user.
Not yet considered the needs of visually impaired users? You're not alone!
It's easier than you think to create braille, large print and audio communications in house and on request. With Dolphin's EasyConverter software you can take a source document such as a Word document letter or a scanned leaflet and convert it while you wait using our step by step wizard. Need to make a change to the output- maybe amend an appointment date or time? You can do that quickly and easily too, on the spot, without having to wait for an external supplier to redo the conversion and get it back to you.
