Website Accessibility Statement

The University Hospitals of Leicester’s Web Development Team are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to continually increase the accessibility and usability of our staff intranet and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Looking to change your display options and view INsite tailored to your needs?

Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
This website endeavors to conform to the Double-A level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.
These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

W3C Standards
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers should also display it correctly.

‘See it Right’ Guidance
The Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) has a pan-disability guidance campaign that offers advice on making information accessible to everyone. This site was built and developed in consultation with their technical and design guidance for websites and the web content authors write to RNIB editorial guidance where possible given the technical nature of clinical content.

Plain English Campaign
INsite content authors endeavor to abide by the ‘Crystal Clear’ Plain English campaign guidance where possible to ensure that information on this site is accessible and understandable to all without previously required knowledge. Although users will find that all introductory sections to topics featured are free of gobbledygook, jargon and confusing technical language, it is not possible to simplify all content due to the nature of our clinical information and resources.

Whilst the Trust’s Web Team strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing the staff intranet, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
