Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).


Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Robin Lane is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

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 reasons.


Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).  This is a feature of some images used in our website software, the practice will look to change the software by September 2021.


Disproportionate burden

Link Description: Not all external link descriptions specify the link destination. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (Link Purpose in Context).

Inline Styling : Some content contains inline styling. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).

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

Audio Captions: YouTube fails to show audio descriptions as default. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5 (Audio Description). The information is from third party software and added via an iframe on to our site. There is a setting option to turn on audio description via the video.


How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 14th September 2020. The test was carried out Robin Lane Health and Wellbeing Centre. We tested the site using the Chrome extension application WAVE, which checks the website against accessibility criteria. The website also went under manual testing and some limited testing using the ChromeVox screen reading plugin.

We tested:

·       Our home page

·       The GP Practice page

·       The Eye clinic page

·       The Contact Us page


These pages were chosen to review as the most needed by patients.


Post Testing Changes

Following the testing we made a significant number of changes, including:​​​​​​​

·       Updating colours used to improve contrast

·       Adding missing image tags to aid screen readers

·       Redesigning some page elements to aid navigation

·       Changing the site menus to remove redundant links


Future Development

It is important to the practice that our website is accessibile to as many of our patients as possible. Patients can be assured that future development of our website will include accessibility as a foundational principle.
