We have detected that you are using Internet Explorer to visit this website. Internet Explorer is now being phased out by Microsoft. As a result, NHS Digital no longer supports any version of Internet Explorer for our web-based products, as it involves considerable extra effort and expense, which cannot be justified from public funds. Some features on this site will not work. You should use a modern browser such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

Accessibility compliance statement for the Clinical Audit Platform
Our accessibility compliance statement for the Clinical Audit Platform explains how accessible our platform is, what we are doing to improve accessibility and what you can do if you are having accessibility problems.
Using this website
This Clinical Audit Platform (CAP) website is run by NHS Digital. We want people to be able to use this website. 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 (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
The accessibility of our website
We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible. Not all content of this website has yet been tested against the existing accessibility standards. This means that certain assistive technologies may not work for this service, or that users with other accessibility needs may not be able to successfully navigate the service.
What to do if you can’t access parts of this website
If you need information on this website in a different format like easy read, audio recording or braille, please contact us by:
We’ll consider your request and aim to get back to you within 3 days.
Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page, or you think we’re not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, please email email@example.com to let us know.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing 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
NHS Digital is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Assistive technologies that may not work for this service include:
voice recognition software
screen enlargement applications
Issues with links
We are aware of the following issues within the links on our site:
there are redundant links relating to the ‘Back’ and ‘Home’ buttons, which take you to the same destination as other links on the same page
some link text doesn't make sense when read on its own (for example 'click here')
Issues with view and navigation
Where we have applied fixes, we have ensured there are no contrast issues. However, we are aware there are other issues with viewing and navigating around the pages:
you can only zoom in up to 200% without text spilling off the screen
multi-select drop downs can be difficult to use when using just a keyboard to navigate
How we tested this website
This website was tested November 2018 – January 2019. The test was carried out by NHS Digital. We carried out automated testing on the website pages relating to the following audits, registries and collections:
Breast and Cosmetic Registry
Clinical Audit Platform Main
National Audit for Cardiac Rehabilitation
National Bowel Cancer Audit
National Diabetes Audit
National Diabetes Inpatient Audit - Harms
Out of Area Placements
Automated testing can't find everything that could be improved but is rarely wrong about what it does find. This means we have fixed accessibility problems on these pages which manual checking could have missed.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We are reviewing where we can undertake more enhanced accessibility testing of all pages. This will enable us to further improve the accessibility of our website.
The Clinical Audit Platform is not a strategic, long term service and we expect to have replaced it by 2022 with a fully compliant service. Should this not occur, then the necessary accessibility updates will be made to the Clinical Audit Platform by 2022.
