Tips for healthcare professionals

RNIB has created some top tips for eye health and sight loss professionals to improve accessibility in healthcare settings.

The tips were put together after hearing the concerns from people with sight loss on both the care environment and the lack of disability awareness among care staff.

Suggestions include clear signage, appropriate colour contrast, help with navigation and providing clear verbal instructions and information during examinations or medical tests.

Top tips for healthcare professions can be downloaded as PDF or word documents.
