For NHS Healthcare providers who must comply with the new NHS Accessible Information Standards:
"Using Word-Bank on www.cnwl.nhs.uk has been instrumental in staff being more interested in accessing easy to understand materials. Licensing HERO Docs is an opportunity for staff to fully engage people with a learning disability and help them understand the very complicated life in Mental Health services. Our staff will save clinical time which is best served with patients and feel much more confident in explaining complicated treatment options with the help of easy read materials. Obviously, this will help with AIS compliance and our patients will reap the benefits by having better access to mental health services as a result of HERO Docs".
