    Accessible health information: join PIF’s online group

    PIF, supported by NHS England, has launched a new online group to support the development of more accessible health information.

    The group is free to join, and is for anyone involved in implementing the new NHS England Accessible Information Standard (AIS), or producing and providing accessible health information.

    The new group will be an online space where users can connect with each other and:

    • Keep up to date with NHS England AIS guidance, support and events
    • Share accessible information resources and guidance

    The Accessible Information Standard aims to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are provided with information that they can easily read or understand, and with support so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services.

    Effective implementation will require health and social care organisations to make changes to policy, procedure, human behaviour and systems. This online group will provide a space to share guidance and best practice that supports these changes to be delivered.
