Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Benfleet Primary Care Network is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
The selection of pages that were audited are compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Of the pages that were audited, there were no issues of non-compliance
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our older PDFs and Word documents may not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
We plan to add captions to all video content on our website, hosted on YouTube.
