The Department of Health and Social Care 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.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Some elements, such as the search filters, do not have a visible focus indicator which makes them difficult to use by keyboard only users (Focus Visible 2.4.7)
Various pieces of text across the site do not meet the minimum required contrast ratio of 4.5:1 (Contrast (minimum) 1.4.3)
Content within the menu becomes obscured when page zoom is increased to over 100% (Reflow 1.4.10)
Sometimes, when navigating to a new page, focus is not set at the start of the new content. This could be disorientating for some users (Focus Order 2.4.3)
Creating documents as HTML rather than PDF where possible
Using the latest templates and documents to promote accessibility
Above issues, as well as latest accessibility guidance, to be considered when updating the site.
