The Information Standard is an initiative supported by the Department of Health that is designed to improve the quality of health and care information that is available to the public.
It was set up to ensure that all information that falls within its scope is clear, accurate, evidence based, up- to-date and easy to read for its target audience. All members of the Information Standard have had to undergo a rigorous assessment of all its publicly available health and care information to ensure that it meets the strict principles of the Information Standard.
In April 2017, The AKU Society was proud to become a member of the Information Standard. We will place the quality tick mark on all printed material within the scope of the Information Standard and will insert the logo in our website's footer.
This marks shows readers that our information can be trusted.
Fundraising information and user-generated information is excluded from the scope of the Information Standard.
The AKU Society shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information they publish and neither the Scheme Operator nor the Scheme Owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs, losses or direct or indirect damage or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of AKU Society.
