Accessible Information Standard

Making health care information accessible

The aim of the accessible information standard is to make sure that people with a medical condition which affects their ability to communicate, get information that they can access and understand, and have any communication support they might need

The standard tells organisations how to make information accessible to people in the format they need, as well as support people’s communication needs, for example by offering support from a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, deafblind manual interpreter or an advocate

NHS England has produced the resources below, in July 2015 to provide an update on the accessible information standard:
Accessible Information Standard (PDF)
Accessible Information Standard (easy read) (PDF)
Accessible Information Standard - British Sign Language (video and subtitles) (YouTube video)
Accessible Information Standard (audio) (MP3)

We want to make sure that we are communicating with you in a way that is easy for you and that you can understand:

  • We want to know if you need information in a specific format e.g. braille, large print or easy read
  • We want to know if you need to receive information in a particular way e.g. electronically, via email, for use with a screen reader
  • We want to know if you need someone to support you at appointments e.g. a sign language interpreter or an advocate
  • We want to know if you lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool

GP Net Earnings

“NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.”



“All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.


 


The average pay for GPs working in Eccleston Medical Centre in the last financial year was £49,092 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 2 locum GPs who have worked in the practice for more than six months.”
