Clear, understandable information is important to help you make decisions about your health and care and get the most out of services.
Since 2016, the Accessible Information Standard has given disabled people and people with a sensory loss the legal right to get health and social care information they can understand and communications support if they need it. But, is the standard being delivered by services and does it go far enough?
Your Care, Your Way aims to:
- Find out how well health and care services are delivering the Accessible Information Standard.
- Make sure that, if the standard covers you, you know your rights.
- Find out who else has problems understanding information about their healthcare and needs to be covered by the standard.
- Make sure more health and care services support people to get healthcare information in the way they need it.
