This Accessibility Statement covers the website www.yorkhullcf.org.uk.
This website is run by York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts.
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen:
- For Internet Explorer 6
Choose View > Text Size from the menu to resize the text.
- For Internet Explorer 7 and 8
Choose Page > Text Size from the menu to resize the text.
Or choose Page > Zoom from the menu to resize the entire page.
- For Internet Explorer 9
Choose Tools > Zoom > Zoom in
- For Mozilla Firefox
Choose View > Zoom from the menu. If you select the 'Zoom Text Only' option, only the text will be re-sized; otherwise the entire page will be resized.
- For Google Chrome
Choose Settings > Zoom from the menu. Currently Chrome only supports page resizing and not text-only resizing.
- All other browsers should be able to resize the text directly from the menu bar.
- For Internet Explorer 6
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver) including images which have alternative text applied as per guidance WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
In many browsers, you can zoom by holding CTRL and pressing + or - . Some browsers also support zooming by holding CTRL and using the mouse scroll wheel. Please see your specific browser help pages if you are having difficulty.
AbilityNet also has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
- Page content is labelled as being in the body, main, header or footer sections of the page enabling screen readers output; meeting WCAG success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- We kept our page titles short to avoid technical fail.
- There is a way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option); in accordance with WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 (bypass blocks).
How accessible this website is
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website but we know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text.
- some tables do not have row headers.
- some of the non-decorative images and buttons do not have appropriate text equivalent.
- most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software; some of our older PDFs i.e. published before 23 September 2018 don’t meet accessibility standards, as there are no newer versions of the documents available we are unable to fix it at the moment, but we will actively work towards updating them once newer versions are available.
- some content is embedded in our website, such as maps and videos, and you cannot easily scale these on screen (but you can open a full screen version).
- many of our videos are embedded from YouTube and may feature labelling from YouTube itself, which is incorrect or not sufficiently descriptive.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations and Disproportionate burden
PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Some of our older PDFs and documents don’t meet accessibility standards, as there are no newer versions of the documents available as we believe it would be a disproportionate burden to amend documents published by 3rd parties we are unable to fix it at the moment, but we will actively work towards updating them once newer versions are available.
Any new PDFs or documents we publish that are essential to accessing our services will meet accessibility standards.
Useful information about ways to make Acrobat documents more accessible is provided on Adobe’s website. Further information can be found on Adobe pages on accessibility.
