We have undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a web site that is clear and simple for everybody to use.

Validation

We have used HTML5 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation.

We have also endeavoured to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.

Access Keys

This site uses a setup that closely matches most international recommendations on access keys. These are:

1 – Home
2 – Skip to content
3 – Site Map
4 – Search field focus
9 – Contact information
0 – Access key details (this page)

Accessible Information Standard

The accessible information standard tells organisations how they should make sure patients receive information in a format that they can understand and also receive support to help them communicate if needed. These standards ensure that people get information in different formats such as: braille, large print or use of sign language interpreters etc.

Please contact the surgery if you have any specific communication or information support needs.
