Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire ICB 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 and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
At 200% zoom, when closing the hamburger menu it is not clear that the keyboard focus is on the close button. This fails WCAG 2.4.7 Focus Visible success criterion. We are investigating this issue with the aim of resolving it as soon as possible.
Some PDF documents have the page title missing within the settings of the PDF document. This fails WCAG 2.4.2 Page titled success criterion. We aim to resolve this issue for all PDF documents on our website by 31st October 2023.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information about our meetings.
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.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
