This post is formed of two documents. The first provides an overview of the needs of disabled people when using health services. The second is a very thorough 121 page audit checklist to assess of the provision that is being made.
Don’t be put of by the references to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The documents are comprehensive and raise key principles and issues that are still of relevance. Importantly, they offer a good example of what to audit .
