Public Health Scotland produces a large amount of information through a variety of channels. It is vital that we do not unintentionally exclude anyone from accessing our information.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure the following:

  • All Public Health Scotland staff are aware of the level of accessibility we must adhere to when producing information products.
  • External suppliers who produce information products for us are aware of the accessibility standards we require the finished product to meet.
  • Our stakeholders and customers are aware of our standards of accessible information provision and what they can expect from the information we produce.
