About the webinar
The Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI) has announced a new accessible information standard (SCCI1605). This standard sets out the steps health and social care providers must take so that individuals who have information and/or communication support needs - which are related to, or caused by, disability, impairment or sensory loss - receive information in the format they require.
The requirement to provide appropriate communication support relates to those who access services, including where appropriate the parents and carers of service users and patients.
When does this have to be implemented by?
The standard must be fully implemented 31 July 2016.
