This is an accessibility statement from The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Christie NHS Foundation Trust external site is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: Offering an option to disable animations (Animation from Interactions), ensuring headings are logical and hierarchical (Section Headings), ensuring users are made aware if links open in a new window or tab ( Change on Request), Making links clear out of context (Link Purpose (Link Only)).
