Accessibility statement

This section explains how we ensure that Beech House Medical Practice website is usable and accessible to all users.ᅠThis includes meeting or surpassing the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.ᅠ However, weᅠaim to comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

This accessibility statement applies only to the Beech House website. It does not cover:

  •  other websites operated by or for the NHS or the Department of Health
  •  other government and agency websites
  •  any other site that we link to from this website

Supported assistive software

Beech Houseᅠconforms to web standards for accessibility (see statement above) and should be compatible with all standard assistive software, including screen readers.

Semantic markup

Structured, semantic markup is used to represent document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles, and so on.

Cascading style sheets are used for visual layout, and Javascript is used to enhance usability and for decorative purposes, however pages are still fully accessible if these technologies are ignored or unsupported.

Images

Descriptive and meaningful text equivalents are provided for all content images, graphical buttons, symbols and objects. Images are not used to represent text, all headings are styled with the help of CSS and can be resized to suit users needs.

Colours

Most of the text is written as black on white and is perfectly contrasting.

Font sizes

Relative units have been used in markup language and CSS, therefore Web site layout accommodates resizing text even in Internet Explorer for Windows.

Page

Every page on the Beech House website has two buttons, one to enlarge the page (zoom in) and the other to zoom out for ease of navigation.
