Accessible Information Standard

Continuing healthcare services want to improve how they communicate with patients and carers and will provide communications assistance where necessary in line with the Accessible Information Standard (AIS). Patients and family members are asked to contact the continuing healthcare team if they require information in a different format or communication support such as braille, large print, easy-read or British Sign Language.

For more information on the AIS, please visit the NHS England website.
