An NHS England Event: Implementing the Accessible Information Standard in Primary Care


The Accessible Information Standard was introduced by NHS England last year to ensure patients with additional communication needs receive information and support, on their care, in the right format. All practices need to comply with the AIS by July 2016.

Led by a group of GPs, this event has been designed specifically for general practice and will offer a step-by step approach to ensuring your IT system can support your practice to implement the AIS.

Industry experts will guide practices through the process of identifying and flagging patients on EMIS or TPP systems. The event will also showcase a range of communication solutions for practices to offer patients with additional communication needs.

The event is free to attend and is supported by NHS England and the HSCIC, who will be providing national updates on the AIS, Summary Care Record and e-Referral Service.
