Some people can find websites difficult to use because of the way they are designed and built, or the nature of the products on offer. The Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation, who are working in partnership to deliver QualityWatch, are committed to providing services that are helpful to people of all abilities and disabilities.

Our website has been built to conform to WCAG 2.0 level AA wherever possible, although there is a lot of interactive content, for which there will be lower conformance.
