Accessible Information Policy
Castleford Medical Practice supports equality of access for all, including in line with commitments set out in the Equality Act 2010 [and the NHS Constitution / Care Act 2014].
We are committed to complying with the Accessible Information Standard (SCCI1605 Accessible Information), and this policy sets out how we will ensure that we do so.
The Accessible Information Standard (‘the Standard’) sets out a series of requirements for organisations that provide NHS services and / or publicly-funded adult social care or health services, for commissioners of such services, and for IT suppliers. These ‘applicable organisations’ have a legal obligation to comply with the Standard, as set out in section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
