DISABLED people in the south are being asked to shape the way they can find out health information.

NHS England is working to develop an ‘information standard’, which will outline requirements and recommendations for NHS and adult social care organisations to follow.

Olivia Butterworth, head of public voice for NHS England, said: ‘We’re particularly keen to understand the views of people from the communities who are likely to be most affected by this project.

‘That is people who are deaf or have some hearing loss, blind or some visual loss, people who are deafblind or people with a learning disability, as well as from carers.’

The deadline for responses is February 21.

The survey is available in a range of different formats, to specify email england.nhs.participation@nhs.net
