This accessibility statement applies to the All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC) website:

This website is run by the All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre which is part of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 200% 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 have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

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

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC) is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Whilst we endeavour to meet ‘WCAG 2.1 AA’ we currently have the following non-compliance issues:


  1. Headings on some pages are not in a logical nested order. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships Level A
  2. Some elements have an illogical focus order.  This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.3 Focus Order Level A

Disproportionate burden

Whilst we will prioritise patient information to ensure it is digitally accessible wherever possible, we know there are some sections of our website which are not currently accessible and have been produced since September 2018.

For these sections, we will identify where we know documents are non-compliant and provide contact details wherever possible. As documentation is renewed in the future, we will ensure digital accessibility is considered. Currently, these sections are listed as below: (and subject to change).

  • Meeting minutes
  • Reports and guidance which may contain complex reporting/statistical data
  • Publications which may have been professionally produced since September 2018 which would have to be fixed by a third party 
Navigation and accessing information
  • There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option)
  • It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content
  • It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping

Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we occasionally have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, patient information leaflets and forms published as Word documents. By January 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages or online forms.

The accessibility requirements do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. We do not plan to fix any PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018, for example meeting papers, policies and procedure documentation or statutory documentation such as Annual Reports. However, we will endeavour to make any new PDFs or Word documents accessible wherever possible.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live audio or video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations. However, we will always aim to provide subtitled versions of pre-recorded videos produced

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared in September 2020. It will be reviewed in January 2021.

This website was and is currently being tested for compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.1 level AA, and these tests have been carried out internally.
