Accessibility

Well is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience.

We have been working hard with our development partner(s), and will continue to do so, to increase the accessibility and usability of the main pharmacy.co.uk website. We strive to ensure that the best experience is achieved by as many customers as possible by following and adhering to the current standards and guidelines within the industry as closely as possible.

A few small things make the world of difference:

  • Ensuring a clear and consistent journey throughout the main site, and sister sites
  • All partner sites follow the same clear brand guidelines and look similar to the main site
  • The use of clear, simple language with a Well tone of voice
  • The use of validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets
  • Clear design, including careful use of text, colour, sizes and backgrounds working together
  • Images in multiple sizes
  • This site has been designed for optimum performance with the following browsers:

IE7 / IE8 - Firefox 3.6 - Safari - Google Chrome

Accessibility commitment statement:

Although Well continually strives to adhere to the current guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of our site 100% of the time due to technology constraints and the pace of change within the industry. It is, however, our commitment to bring as many areas of our site as possible up to industry-standard levels of accessibility, and we will continue to work on this.

Third Party sites and add-ons

Some sections of this website are provided by and controlled by third parties; it has not been possible for the same standards of accessibility to be applied to these areas of the site. However we do work with our partners to ensure accessibility is achieved wherever possible.
