Making a complaint
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018, known as the "Accessibility Regulations".
If you contacted us to report a problem with this website and you are not happy with the way we responded, you can contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
NHS England is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 Level AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
We know about the following areas where the website does not meet accessibility standards and we have a plan to address each of them.
- "Find out more", "Click here", "here", "link" etc are used as both the visible and programmatic link phrase for a link on the "Carers" and Surgery policies pages. Links that don't adequately convey their purpose can make it difficult for people who use a screen reader to identify the direction of the link, unless they specifically backtrack and read around the link to ascertain its context. This fails WCAG 2.2 Success Criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context) (A). We plan to ensure the direction of all links on the website is clearly indicated.
Meeting WCAG 2.2 Level AA is not a disproportionate burden.
