This website is owned and updated by the business it represents. However the tools to edit it and add content are maintained by My Surgery Website (MSW). As MSW we have prepared this statement as it is our aim for as many people as possible to be able to use this website. We have integrated an accessibility tool called Userway in to this product which means you should be able to:
Navigate the website using a keyboard
Navigate the website using a screen reader
Increase text size
Pause website animations
Highlight all links in website content
Convert text to dyslexia friendly and visually impaired fonts
Increase text spacing
Alter the colour contrast of website elements
Increase size of cursor
We’ve made the website compatible with other accessibility tools and plugins such as Browsealoud, and others. This mean you should also be able to
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
