Accessibility

This website is run by Leeds Academic Health Partnership. We have tried to make our site as accessible as possible for all visitors. Before we launched it, we tested it and asked other people for their comments and feedback.

Thank you to all of the local people, health and care professionals, and our partners for your feedback and support.

We want this website to be as easy as possible for everyone to use. That means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300 per cent without the text spilling off the screen
  • find your way around the website using just a keyboard
  • find your way around the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to 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.
