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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust 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 fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix our Annual Reports or Standing Financial Instructions documents.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Our Google maps and Twitter Timeline are both third-party content which is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Navigation and accessing information
Some tables do not have row headers when needed, so cannot be navigated using the headers.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing these navigation issues and believe that doing so now, having upgraded our website platform in 2019, would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when we next look to upgrade our website platform.
