'Make it Make Sense' - RNIB Cymru report on inaccessibility of health information

A new report from RNIB Cymru shows that health information is still being provided to vision impaired people in Wales in a format that they are unable to read.

The report, 'Make it Make Sense', found that 32 per cent of blind and partially sighted people who completed the survey had missed an appointment or had their healthcare affected because they didn’t receive information they could read, and nearly nine in 10 respondents have never been asked by their GP or hospital about their communication needs. It contains recommendations on actions for Welsh Government and NHS Wales to address the issues, including the updating and implementation of the existing 'All Wales Standards for Accessible Communication and Information for People with Sensory Loss' .
