Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the East and North Hertfordshire CCG website.

This site is currently being redesigned to meet updated accessibility guidance.

This website is run by East and North Hertfordshire CCG. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also make the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet (https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

East and North Hertfordshire CCG is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is not fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard and is undergoing a rebuild to assure compliance.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs as meeting papers for our Governing Body meetings in public, with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
