This website is run by the Canterbury Medical Practice

We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website, and we have designed it to be accessible.


How you can use this website

On this website, you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels, and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% with text staying visible on the screen, and most images scaling without resolution loss
  • navigate most of the website using a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • read most of the website using a screen reader, including the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver
  • read most of the website on devices without a screen, like a braille computer
  • use the website even if Javascript is switched off

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.  

Some of our content is technical, and we use technical terms where there is no easier wording we could use without changing what the text means.

If you have a disability then AbilityNet has advice to help you make your device easier to use.


How accessible this website is

The majority of this website is fully accessible, and we run yearly audits to identify any new problems.

We know that some parts of the website aren't fully accessible:

  • there may be some PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Publisher documents which haven't been designed for accessibility
  • content in tables, used to format text, may not be suitably formatted for screen readers
  • some widgets, outside editing control, may fail permitted contrast ratios
  • some content is embedded in our website, such as maps and videos, and you cannot easily scale these on screen

How to get information in an accessible format

If you have problems accessing information on this website, or would like any of our work in a different format like a more accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording, or braille:


We'll consider your request, and aim to get back to you within 3 days.
