Accessibility Features

Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust's website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. The following accessibility features have been incorporated into the site:

Standards Compliance
The pages on this website were built in 2007 to comply with a minimum Level 1 standard as defined by the Worldwide Web Consortium (WC3/508), the international web standards body, through its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and tested through the automated tool, WebExact. Where possible the site aims to achieve Level 2 standards for some pages.

Text Size Changer
The site allows users to increase the text size. You can find the text size changer panel at the top of every page.

Contrast Changer
This site has a number of colour schemes for you to choose from. Every page has links to 'High Viz', Dyslexia friendly and default styles at the top of the page.

Navigation aids
The navigation system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The additional breadcrumb navigation system is designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website. All pages on the website include a search box.

All links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail.

All images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes, which describe the image for non-visual readers.

Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and we are continually working to offer a user friendly experience. However, if you have any problems using this web site please contact us by email.


Leading with excellence, caring with compassion
