Making this website easy for everyone to use

We’ve worked hard to make this website easy for everyone to use. Here are just a few of the things we have done to make it accessible for all.  

  • We have designed the website with a logical content structure to help you find what you’re looking for as quickly and easily as possible.
  • A ‘search’ facility has been incorporated into the website to help you find information in seconds.
  • We have used a non-serif font and a colour scheme which is easy on the eye.
  • An A-Z finder features in various parts of the site to help you find specific wards, services and treatments with ease.
  • We have used an 800x600 (pixels) screen width which means no horizontal scrolling is required.
  • We have used standards-compliant semantic markup to ensure  compatibility across many browsers, screen readers, alternative media-types and assistance software.
