The Accessible Information Standard (AIS)
South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust is committed to making sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss get information that they can access and understand, and any communication support that they need.
The Accessible Information task and finish group is chaired by the Director of Nursing, the group is responsible for the implementation of AIS, British Deaf Association Charter and improving accessibility to our buildings and clinics.
The Group meets every 2 months and there are 4 work streams that report into the task and finish group and each work stream has developed a work plan. The Task and Finish group provides regular progress reports to the Equality and Diversity Steering group who are responsible for monitoring compliance with the standard.
The work streams include:
- Accessibility I.T. Accessibility Work-Stream
- Accessible Facilities Work-Stream
- Commissioning and Procurement
- British Deaf Association Charter and Interpreting Services Work-Stream
