Topic: Accessible services
Document Owner: Hse national office for human rights and equality policy
National Group: Hse national office for human rights and equality policy
Effective From: 01 June 2014
The purpose of this HSE National Guideline is to assist health and social care providers to comply with legal obligations

Provides practical guidance to all health and social care staff about how they can provide accessible services. While these guidelines refer to specific disabilities, if we take steps to routinely provide accessible services for all, we will positively influence the experience of everybody using the services. It details obligations are in statute to provide accessible services and serve as a resource for health and social care professionals who may be planning future services.
