Technical information about this website’s accessibility

UK Health Security Agency is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Navigation

  • A ‘main’ ARIA Landmarks is missing from the page template (Information and Relationships 1.3.1)
  • There is no method to bypass repeated blocks of content and skip to the main content of a page (Bypass Blocks 2.4.1)
  • The navigation menu on the ‘Beat the bugs’ page has navigation menu and page layout which is very different from the rest of the website which may cause disruption for some users (Consistent Navigation 3.2.3)

Page content

  • Some text on the ‘Beat the bugs’ page does not meet the minimum contrast ratio of 4.5:1 (Contrast (minimum) 1.4.3)
  • Content within the carousel section of the ‘Beat the Bugs’ page becomes obscured when page zoom is increased over 200% (Reflow 1.4.10 and Resize Text 1.4.4)
  • Several elements within the main navigation menu and page content were not operable with a keyboard alone (Keyboard 2.1.1)
  • The same link text has been used for multiple links on the site (these links navigate to different pages) which means it is difficult for some users to determine which link leads where (Consistent Identification 3.2.4)

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are in the process of redesigning our website to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, and address the non-compliances that currently exist. We aim to complete this by April 2022.
