INTENDED FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR CARERS IN THE UK OR IRELAND
When creating this website, we aimed to make something that's accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We worked, and actively work, to increase the accessibility and usability of the website by testing in a number of browsers, screen readers, accessibility and HTML validators and other web tools. By doing this, we align ourselves with many of the available standards and guidelines set for websites on the Internet today.
The site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS and checked with the W3C Markup Validation Service. We aim for the site to display correctly and uniformly across all major current browsers and the use of standards compliant code should mean any future browsers will also display it correctly. However, whilst we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability and attempt to ensure that all the content validates and displays correctly, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
