Accessibility Statement

NHS Coventry and Warwickshire ICB is committed to making its website as accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This accessibility statement applies to the website

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
  • 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)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

If you have a disability, AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use.

How accessible this website is

We know that there are some parts of this website that are not fully accessible.

  • many older PDF documents aren’t fully accessible to screen reader software
  • some videos don’t have captions
  • some images don't have descriptions of what the image shows
  • some pages and documents are not written in plain English

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reason(s):

(a) non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

The following pages do not comply with the WGAC 2.1 AA success criteria

At 400% zoom, the search bar under 'Search for jobs by keyword or job reference' does not reflow to fit the webpage.

This section is provided by a third-party service and it is therefore not possible for this issue to be rectified until it is resolved by the provider.

All pages do not comply with the WCAG 1.4.13 AA success criteria 

When hovering over the navigation bar dropdown menus, there is no mechanism to dismiss the additional content triggered without moving pointer hover or keyboard focus. 

The following pages do not comply with the WCAG 4.1.2 A success criteria 

This refers to the contact link in the green block on the left side of the webpage.    

The following pages contain images that do not have alternative text 

The images under 'We have vacancies in the following sectors' do not have alternative text.

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services, but may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 4.1.2 (name, role value).

We will continue to improve the accessibility of documents, prioritising those that are viewed most often.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Place maps

It is unlikely that the interactive map for our Places is fully accessible with all assistive technologies. However, maps are currently not within the scope of the regulations.

Embedded maps that link through to place-based content may not be accessible. However, the links for each of these areas are provided in the sidebar of the page.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 22/08/2023, it was last reviewed on 27/11/2023. 

This website was last tested on 17 August 2023. The test was carried out by the Government Digital Service and the issues were resolved in October 2023.

We carry out testing on a sample of top-level webpages every 6 months using a mixture of manual, automated, and semi-automated tests. We also aim to achieve WCAG AA compliance where possible with the colours used.
