Accessibility statement for the HPS website (

NDPH's commitment to accessibility

The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) is committed to making our websites and digital services as accessible as possible. Our aim is to combine excellent user experiences with high levels of accessibility and inclusivity, so everyone can use our digital services, whatever their abilities or disabilities.

Adapt your experience to your needs

Some people are likely to get the most accessible experience by customising their computer to suit their individual needs, for example, to get the site dictated to them, to change the colour-scheme, or increase the size of the text. If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit AbilityNet for advice on making your devices easier to use if you have a disability. In addition, major operating systems produce the following guidance:

Improving accessibility

We are aware that some of the content on this website may not be fully accessible and believe that the site is partially compliant with accessibility standards. Much of the content was created before September 2018. This includes PDF documents which aren't essential to the service we provide. Occasional updates to this site are being made, but the majority of the content is not being updated regularly. The content of this site will be integrated with the Nuffield Department of Population Health website which is being maintained on an ongoing basis. This change will be made by September 2021.

Feedback and contact information

If you experience any difficulties accessing any of the information on this website, or need the information in a different format, please email the NDPH Communications Team. We will consider your request and get back to you within 14 days.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the 'accessibility regulations'). If you have a complaint and are not happy with how we respond to it, please contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
