What we’re doing to improve accessibility:
To maintain a high standard of accessibility for new content, and improve existing content as outlined above under “How accessible this website is” (and further where possible), we regularly:
- review specific aspects of our site’s accessibility and usability
- conduct automatic and manual accessibility checks across the site
- correct errors or implement improvements and
- cascade best practice approaches to content editors.
Preparation of this accessibility statement:
This website was last tested by Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB on 13th March 2023 when the following tests were carried out on a sample of pages and content types:
- Text resizing / page zoom
- Colour and contrast changes
- Alt-text check for all images
- Navigating with keyboard alone
- Submitting forms with keyboard alone
- Tests with Silktide and axeDev
- Navigating and accessing content with Read Aloud (text to speech voice reader)
- Manual visual checks for accessibility.
Our sample was chosen by selecting prominent examples of each of the following content types (multiple examples where they exist):
- Top level content landing pages,
- News posts,
- Contact form,
Issues with technology:
The vast majority of our website works correctly on any web technology. For security reasons, we only support TLS 1.2 and higher security protocols, and this means that some older browsers will not show the site.
How our site looks and work is based on HTML5, and we test for and support the following browsers:
- Google Chrome (versions in support)
- Mozilla Firefox (versions in support)
- Microsoft Edge (versions in support)
- Apple Safari (versions in support)
We also test in the Lynx browser to ensure that the site renders correctly for non-screen users.
You may experience unexpected behaviour in other browsers, although we use fully validated code which should work on any modern (HTML5) browser.
Internet Explorer no longer supported
Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB no longer support Internet Explorer, as this browser is now at the end of its lifecycle.
Issues with links:
We are aware of the following issues within the links on our site:
- some link text doesn’t make sense when read on its own (for example ‘click here’), we will correct these as we identify them
- on some pages there are multiple links with the same link text but different destinations on one page
- many older PDF files contain broken links which do not resolve – we do not intend to resolve these as it is a disproportionate burden for files which are no longer in active use.
We scan the website for broken links and look to fix them as soon as they are identified.
Issues with PDFs and other documents:
PDFs are not able to comply with the requirements of the web accessibility standard, and we do not generally upload new PDFs. Where we do create new PDFs, we use the PDF/A standard which is more accessible. Our site contains a large number of PDFs created in previous years.
Where these are no longer being updated, we do not intend to recreate them in accessible versions as this would be a disproportionate burden. The accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
We do not generally add new PDFs to our site. There are some exceptions:
- we add some PDFs as downloads of reports or publications, but where a web page version is also available
- our annual reports, which must, by law, be laid before parliament in a printed version, and then appear unaltered
- our directions and data provision notices which must, by law, include a signature in order to be valid
- downloads intended for print purposes, such as posters.
