Accessibility on the NASGP website and our platform, LocumDeck

We want as many of our clinician members and GP practice colleagues as possible to be able to fully use our website and our platform, LocumDeck. 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.

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

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

At NASGP we are working towards making our services as useful as possible to as many members and GP practice colleagues as possible.

  • Raising awareness and promoting culture of accessibility amongst our team.
  • Gathering data and information around the accessibility experiences of members and staff.
  • Reviewing the accessibility of our website and platform.
  • Working towards WCAG 2.1 AA compliance on new content and areas of LocumDeck.
  • Including WCAG testing into our development procedures and testing plan.
  • Making content easier to read and navigate.
  • Working on template-level fixes with developers, starting with changing our use of colour, contrast levels and font.
