Accessibility statement for NHS Bradford District and Craven clinical commissioning group (CCG)

This accessibility statement applies to this website – www.bradfordcravenccg.nhs.uk  – this website is run by NHS Bradford District and Craven clinical commissioning group (CCG).

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Our website was last tested for accessibility on 31 March 2020 against the WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standard where it passed with no known problems.

The AbilityNet website (opens in a new window) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

There are some parts of this website that are not fully accessible:

  • some PDF documents, published prior to September 2020, are not fully accessible to screen reader software – if you would like these documents provided in an alternative format, such as large print, you can contact the communications team via email at communications@bradford.nhs.uk 
  • we cannot take responsibility for documents which have been provided by a third party organisation, however, we will state where a document has been provided by a third party and where possible link you to their website.

Our plans for improving accessibility

For new content, we plan to:

  • produce documents in an HTML format, with a downloadable PDF as optional
  • only publish PDFs where they are accessible to screen reader software, or highlight where a document may not be fully accessible and provide a point of contact so you can request that information in an alternative format
  • where documents have been produced by a third party, to provide a link to the third party website.

We are also in the process of implementing a new content policy for staff and delivering training sessions on how to make content accessible.
