The Accessible Information Standard

From 1 April 2016, pharmacy teams should, as a matter of normal routine practice, ask patients about any accessible information and / or communication needs they may have and ensure that information is recorded on their notes.

Where you can act on this information right away by making simple adjustments you should do so, but you are not legally required to take any action under the Standard until 31 July 2016. However, you must continue to meet the existing requirements of the Equality Act 2010 – a separate legal obligation – by making reasonable adjustments to support persons with a disability to access your services.  More details can be found here
