AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

We know that significant parts of this website are not fully accessible. We are retiring the website in November 2020 and it will be replaced by a new website that will be compliant with accessibility standards.

Some of the issues you may experience on this site now include:

  • people using only a keyboard to navigate this website will find they are unable to tab easily between content and will find it hard to understand where the focus is
  • there are several issues relating to text and non-text colour contrast meaning people with low vision may have particular trouble reading some of the text
  • some links are not described clearly enough for users to understand what they do or where they go
  • people using screen readers and other assistive technology will find it difficult to navigate the website

Feedback and contact information

If you need information on this website in a different format – like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille – please email enquiries@phe.gov.uk.

Technical information about this website's accessibility

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

Compliance status

This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The exemptions are listed below.

Disproportionate burden

There are a number of accessibility issues with this website. These include but are not limited to:

  • the poor contrast between the text and coloured backgrounds used in a number of places such as links and buttons means they may be hard to read for all users
  • an absence of defined hover and focus states means anyone with visual impairments or using a keyboard to navigate the site may find it hard to know where they are
  • some of the links are not designed to appear as links, which may cause confusion
  • some of the images do not have appropriate alternative text attached to them, which may be confusing for anyone using assistive technology to browse the site
  • it is not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping
  • headings on pages are not always ordered logically, making it hard for people using assistive technology to read the page aloud in a way that makes sense and allows them to understand the relationships between the content
  • some of the way links are described are not clear enough to be understood in isolation
  • there are limited ways for users to find content – there is no sitemap
  • changes made to search results by filters are not announced by screen readers
  • case study videos may not have subtitles or audio descriptions

We have assessed the cost of fixing issues listed above. Because this website is due to be retired in November 2020, we believe that fixing the issues now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

As mentioned in the "Disproportionate burden" section, this website is in the process of being retired and replaced, and we expect to have a new website in place that is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard during November 2020.
