Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust is committed to ensuring that everyone is able to access any information that is on our website. 

As part of this commitment we have taken a number of steps to ensure we can meet your needs. 

Website

Our website makes use of a tool called Recite Me, which provides a range of accessibility tools to help you view our website in a way that suits you best.

Accessibility features built into the site include the ability to:

  • Increase or decrease the font size
  • Change the background colours to improve contrast
  • Speak the words on the page for you (audio files are available to download)
  • Translate pages and documents into a range of languages
  • Apply a screen to text to help you focus on certain paragraphs
  • A built in dictionary to check any words you are unfamiliar with

All of the settings are fully adjustable and can be saved for the next time you visit the site. You can also reset these options back to the original settings should you wish.

If you have any concerns about the accessibility of our website you can contact our Communications Team by emailing communications@shsc.nhs.uk

Accessible information

If you require information in a different format, you need communication support or an interpreter (including BSL) we can provide this.

When you contact us please let us know what support you need. We will make sure that this is recorded so that anyone else meeting you or sending you information knows about your requirements.

If you have an assessment for our services you will also be asked about any needs you may have and the person doing the assessment will record these. 

You can find a range of health resources translated into different languages on the NHS.uk website, and easy-read health information on the EasyHealth website

If you would like to information about our services in a different format then please email engage@shsc.nhs.uk

Should there be any further improvements you think we can make we would be love to hear from you.
