Accessble Information Standard (AIS)

The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) applies to all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care services (including GP practices) and is a legal requirement.  It aims to ensure patients and carers with a disability, impairment or sensory loss to:

  • Get information they can access and understand

  • Receive any communication support they need

The Accessible Information Standard improves patient outcomes and experiences, and ensures the provision of safer and more personalised care and services. 

In our Easy Read section we have added some useful health leaflets.
