How we try to ensure accessibility for all

We’re committed to making sure our website is accessible to as many people as possible. This site aims to conform to the ‘Double A’ level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and we develop and test accordingly. 

If you are having any difficulties with accessing the information on this website, please don’t hesitate to contact us 


Some of the guidelines we follow:

  • We try to use clear, simple language
  • We use colours that have enough contrast to make sure text is clear and legible
  • We include Google translate on all pages
  • We use the Browsealoud tool to help translate all the pages - both in text, and read the pages out in over 20 different languages

Do you need help viewing the Berkshire Healthcare website?

You can make this and any other website easier to read by changing the size text, making your mouse pointer easier to see, magnifying the screen and changing the colours of the background and text.
