Accessibility

This website is owned and managed by Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website.

For example, you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 400% on most pages without problems
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • listen to content on the website using a screen reader, including the most recent versions of NVDA and TalkBack.

We’ve worked hard to make the website text as simple to understand as possible but recognise that not all pages are currently written in plain English.

There is advice available online to help you make your device easier to use if you have a disability, including from the AbilityNet charity.
