Welcome to the Accessibility page of The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
We are committed to providing accessible healthcare services to all patients, including those with disabilities. As part of our commitment to accessibility, we have designed our website to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA standards.
Our website is accessible using only a keyboard. You can use the tab key to navigate through links and other interactive elements, and the enter key to activate them.
Text Alternatives for Non-Text Content
We provide alternative text for images, videos and other non-text content to ensure that our website is accessible to users with visual impairments. If you encounter an image or video without alternative text, please let us know via
We have designed our website with a clear and consistent navigation structure to help you find the information you need quickly and easily. All headings and labels are bold to make them easier to identify.
We have chosen the colors used on our website to ensure that the contrast between text and background is sufficient to enable users with visual impairments to read the content. If you require higher contrast:
- you can change the browser setting for text and background colours and visited and unvisited links in Firefox and Internet Explorer
- you can install a browser extension in Chrome to change colours
- you can change the appearance of your operating system, including the appearance of most software, via a system setting
Video and Audio Content
We try to provide captions and transcripts for all of our videos and audio content, to ensure that they are accessible to users with hearing impairments. If you find content which does not meet your needs please let us know via
We regularly test our website with users with disabilities to ensure that it remains accessible and usable for everyone.
If you have any feedback or suggestions for how we can improve the accessibility of our website or services, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We welcome your feedback and are committed to making continual improvements to our accessibility standards.
