Your Care, Your Way

Healthwatch England have recently devised the 'Your Care, Your Way' campaign to highlight the importance of accessible information within health and social care.

Clear, understandable information is important to help you make decisions about your health and care and get the most out of services. 

The Accessible Information Standard gives disabled people and people with a sensory loss the legal right to get health and social care information they can understand and communications support if they need it. But, is the standard being delivered by services and does it go far enough? 

‘Your Care, Your Way’ aims to:  

  • Find out how well health and care services are delivering the accessible information standard.

  • Make sure that, if the standard covers you, you know your rights.

  • Find out who else has problems understanding information about their healthcare and needs to be covered by the standard. 

Join the campaign and find out about the organisations involved!  Just click here to find out more.
