This website is run by NHS Digital on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screenreader.
We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

What we are doing to improve accessibility
We are currently working on fixes for the above single A non-compliances. This website, however, 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 by July 2022.
Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was prepared on 16 September 2021. It was last reviewed on 25 March 2022.
This website was last tested on 26 May 2021 to WCAG Level A Only. The test was carried out by Zoonou.
For testing carried out by Zoonou, the evaluation methodology is based on WCAG-EM, using a structured sample in preference to a randomly selected sample where possible. Zoonou conduct manual accessibility audits using both code reviews and assistive technology pairings recommended by GDS. These are then supplemented with automated reviews using Sortsite.
