SHOW - Scotland's Health On the Web


The National Health Service, and the SHOW team are committed to making information available on the web to everyone in Scotland regardless of web browsers used or physical characteristics of users. We will deliver on this commitment by devoting the time and resources necessary to ensure that all users can access the services we deliver. We will address the needs of people with disabilities in the work undertaken by the SHOW team at all stages of development. We have established and will regularly review our guidelines for accessibility (PDF - 391K) and will make them publicly available. We will endeavour to ensure that they are fully implemented both by ourselves and by the external agencies we deal with. We actively seek feedback on the accessibility of this site please contact us via our comments section.
