We actively work to ensure that this website is accessible and usable by people of all abilities.

This accessibility statement applies only to the Southport and Formby Health website.

How to get the most accessible experience from this website

Our website can be viewed on a range of different screen sizes and the size of text can be changed to suit different people. We have also included a search facility, site map and useful links page to help people find information more easily.

Most images on this site are accompanied by a brief alt-text tag that identifies the image or its function. If you are using a graphic browser, alt-text tags are visible only if the browser's automatic image-loading feature is turned off.

Every effort is made to ensure that all hyperlinks to external websites and documentation open in a new window to aid navigation and avoid confusion.

Changing Settings

Using your web browser, you can change the size of the text on this website. You can also make other helpful changes in your browser, as well as within your computer generally.

Accessibility Guidelines

All pages of this website conform to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0. These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformity to these guidelines also makes websites more user friendly for all people.

Web Standards and Technologies

This website has been built to conform with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. These technologies are relied upon throughout the site. The site displays correctly in all popular web browsers, and degrades gracefully in older browsers.

In addition this website uses JavaScript, PDF and other technologies. These technologies are not relied upon and the website works perfectly well without them. Where JavaScript, PDF along with other technologies have been used, they meet the same high levels of accessibility as the rest of the site.
