AccessAble and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust launch new Accessibility Guide

Mental health and community services provider becomes the latest of over 70 NHS Trusts to partner with AccessAble; the UK’s leading provider of detailed disabled-access information.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has worked with AccessAble to create Detailed Access Guides to facilities, wards, and departments at their community bases, hospitals, and clinics.

The Guides are 100 per cent facts, figures and photographs to help patients, visitors and staff plan their journeys to and around the hospital or clinic, covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to walking distances and accessible toilets.

We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It’s why all of the details you’ll find in the Guide have been checked in person, on site, by trained surveyors.

Dr Gregory Burke, Founder and Chair of AccessAble, said:

“We are delighted to launch this new Accessibility Guide to Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, prioritising accessibility and patient experience, recognising how crucial detailed access information is for disabled patients, visitors and staff.

Our guides provide information people need about accessibility, so they can plan their visit with confidence because they know what to expect. It’s about treating people with dignity.”

Mo Patel, Head of Inclusion at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“Navigating around our sites will now be easier to do thanks to the launch of these Access Guides.

It’s been a privilege to partner with AccessAble because we are passionate about meeting the needs of our service users and creating spaces where they feel comfortable.

We hope these guides provide the information people need about accessibility, making journeys to, from and around our sites easier.”
