Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard aims to make sure people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss get information they can easily read, or understand with support so they can communicate effectively with us. This could include providing information in alternative formats, such as:
All organisations that provide adult social care or NHS care must follow the Accessible Information Standard.
- ask you if you have any information or communication needs, and find out how to meet those needs
- record those needs clearly in a set way
- highlight or 'flag' your file or notes so it is clear you have information or communication needs and how those needs should be met
- share information about those communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care, when we have consent or permission to do so
- take steps to ensure you receive information which you can access and understand
We recognise the benefits to people in implementing the standards. We accept that compliance is in line with or commitments to equitable, high quality, accessible and personalised care.
If you have any information or communication needs tell your worker and ask them to record it on your social care record.
We produce a range of easy read leaflets and fact sheets.
We've produced a short animated film which gives you an overview of our adult care services and how our processes work.
The NHS have produced a number of information videos showing how the Accessible Information Standard could help you.
We are working to convert our documents to meet the standard. Where we cannot, contact information will be available to request another format.
We aim to support people's health and wellbeing and help them to stay independent enjoying a good quality life for as long as possible.
We do this by making a Universal Offer to all Derbyshire residents for a range of information and advice, signposting, assessment and help with finding and buying services.
Adult care videos
All our adult care videos are in British Sign Language and have English subtitles and voice over.
We've also produced a short animated film which gives you an overview of our adult care services and how our processes work.
