Accessibility

Health and Care Economics Cymru strives to make this website accessible and easy to use for everyone.

The site’s layout takes into account users who are blind or visually impaired and is compatible with popular screen reading software. If you have difficulties using a mouse, the site can be navigated using only a keyboard. We are currently working to ensure that our videos and photos are accessible for all by including captions/subtitles.
