Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Guy’s Cancer Academy is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

All publicly accessible pages on the website are partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.  There a small number of errors regarding empty headers and links, which are not able to address directly ourselves so we are working with our theme developers to suggest fixes to their code.     

How we tested this website

This website was last tested in January 2020. The test was carried out using the WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool.

We tested all six publicly accessible pages on our website platform, available at https://guyscanceracademy.co.uk/.
