Accessibility and our website

​RCPCH is committed to making our web presence as accessible as possible and is endeavouring to make all aspects of our website Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 compliant to a level A minimum, AA for the majority of content.

Accessibility features

This site includes the following accessibility features:

  • skip to content ( site only, not subdomains) 
  • alternative text detail for images.

Web standards and technologies

This website has been built to conform to W3C standards for HTML and CSS. These technologies are relied upon throughout the site. The site displays correctly in all modern web browsers.

Accessibility exceptions

While our website strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so.

Our site connects to a number of legacy College systems, such as the PCO UK (Paediatric Care Online) payment system, which have some accessibility issues.

We also use some third party systems for which we cannot guarantee the level of accessibility (eg to display page turning PDFs).

We endeavour to provide alternative means of accessing content and completing tasks.
