Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Bartlet Group Practice is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Issues with PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDF, and Word documents are not able to comply with the requirements of the web accessibility standard.

These may fail WCAG 2.1 AA Success Criterions; 1.1.1 (Non-text Content), 1.4.1 (Use of Colour), 1.4.3 (Contrast - Minimum), 1.4.5 (Images of Text), 2.4.3 (Focus Order), 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels), 3.2.4 (Consistent Identification).

Disproportionate burden

We do not consider any elements to be a disproportionate burden at present as we understand WCAG 2.1 AA. Should any come to light, we will update this section.

Navigation and accessing information

Many of our older PDFs, and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards. For example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

Some of our PDFs, and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we might have PDFs or publisher documents with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. We plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

Interactive tools and transactions

We do not consider any elements to be non compliant at present as we understand WCAG 2.1 AA. Should any come to light, we will update this section

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations.

PDF’s and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to check and amend PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are actively looking to improve the accessibility on our website.

The improvements below have been identified on our current work schedule:

  • Identify and convert any essential pdf into screen readable documents (as soon as possible)
  • Identify and convert any essential non-pdf into screen readable documents or add as html pages (as part of website maintenence)
  • Provide an alternative to tables used to provide information that do not work successfully with a screen reader (as part of website maintenence)

Preparation of this accessibility statement.

This statement was prepared on 13th August 2020. It was last reviewed on 13th August 2020

This website was built and is tested ongoing by Tree View Designs with full WCAG2.1 (AA) compliance.

We used this approach to deciding on a sample of pages to test.
Our website providers Tree View Website had provided us with a statement:

‘Tree View Designs builds websites with full WCAG 2.1 (AA) compliance in accordance with HM Government’s Accessibility Regulations for Public Sector Bodies. We make sure your website is accessible to patients of all abilities and we provide on-line assistance to help you stay compliant as you update your site going forward’

They have made us aware of the possible probelms with PDF's, and Word documents. We currently have NHS restrictions on what software we are allowed to download, so are unable to test free screen readers on site.
