Website accessibility

Leicester's Hospitals are committed to providing a website with information that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology, disability and capability. We are continuously working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A 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.

Exceptions

Whilst Leicester's Hospitals 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 Leicester's Hospitals website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
