Nursing in Practice is committed to providing services that are helpful to all our users, and this includes providing an accessible website.
We have built our pages to be compatible with adaptive technologies used by disabled people, and we ensure that hyperlinks clearly describe where they go.
Nursing in Practice has attempted to comply specifically with:
Priority 1 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and, where possible, Priority 2 guidelines. The elements covered by the Priority 3 guidelines are not, in most cases used by our sites, however as the sites develops such functions we will aim for compliance at this level.
We are committed to a process of on-going improvement and are working to ensure all older content is made compliant with the provisions of the DDA and that all new content is developed under the guidelines outlined above.
Guidance on using this website

Font and background colour
Each page on our website includes a clear heading. Any consequent headings are introduced in a structured hierarchy, and are clearly marked up using 'h1' and 'h2' tags etc.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
We try to ensure that link text makes sense out of context and that it accurately describes the pages it points to. You can use the tab key on your keyboard (as well as your mouse) to move consecutively from link to link.
A description of every image is provided, either in the alt tag or on the page itself.
