Accessibility Statement

This website has been developed by EMIS Health and is run by the specified organisation. 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 screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also looked to use ‘Plain English’ where possible in order to make the website text simple to understand.

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

Keyboard navigation in Mac OS

For keyboard navigation to work in Mac OS an option has to be turned on:

System Preferences Keyboard  Shortcuts

In that panel is a check box labelled “Use keyboard navigation to move focus between controls”. Check that box and Restart your browser for the change to take effect.
