ACCESSEBILITY 

General statement

We will strive to deliver the service that people demand and deserve, and to create a culture and environment that eliminates unfair discrimination, and which actively promotes inclusion of different individuals in all of our operations.

We support the principles of the Equality Act (2010) and are committed to recognising and responding to the needs of all disabled people. It is our intention, wherever possible, that our premises and facilities are accessible whatever the nature of disability. However, we are conscious that because of its age and size the building is not the most disabled-friendly, thus we encourage you to contact us if you have any specific requirements to allow us to offer help and advice for you to plan your visit.

We are constantly striving to improve the design of our website and wherever possible introduce changes which will make it more accessible including complying with priority 1 and 2 guidelines of WCAG 2.0. All pages use structured semantic mark-up where possible, use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS2) for presentation and functional images have descriptive ALT tags. The style sheets have been written to display pages correctly in the most commonly used browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome.

To enhance user experience, our site utilises a small amount of JavaScript. If you have disabled JavaScript, or your browser software does not fully support it, we have done our best to ensure the site remains operable. We don’t use access keys as they will often conflict with keyboard commands already in use by some browsers or assistive technologies. Where possible, we've avoided using links that open a new browser window but where these are present, we've stated so in the text or the title attribute of the link. Foreground and background colours have been selected to provide a proper level o contrast for ease of reading.

To help you when you do have problems, our consistent footer navigation contains links to our FAQ pages (which are fully searchable) and links to our Sitemap, “About Us” and “Contact Us” pages.

We welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback. Please visit our Contact us page to give us any feedback you may have.

PLEASE NOTE, that our premises have limited access and narrow corridors and doors and may not be suitable for a wheelchair user or large baby carriages. 

VISITORS WITH MOBILITY ACCESS REQUIREMENTS

Unfortunately, due to the age of the building and the construction techniques used when it was built, it may not always be possible to offer our services to some wheelchair users, e.g. those, who are constantly reliant on the use of a wheelchair.

If you do not require a wheelchair space, but do require someone to facilitate your visit to us please contact us on 02036872939 or email info@cityultrasound.co.uk  to discuss your mobility requirements.
