Provision of a service does not mean people know about it
Disabled patients are set to benefit from improved healthcare after a new law comes into force to ensure information they receive is clear, consistent & easy to understand.  The Accessible Information Standard will be implemented on 31 July 2016 and aims to provide people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss with information that they can easily read or understand.  This means informing organisations how to make sure people get information in different formats, for example in large print, braille or via a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter.  All organisations that provide NHS or adult social care are required to follow the new standard.
