Information Standard for health and social care information
FFT are proud to announce that in August 2011 we were awarded the Information Standard for health and social care information.
The Information Standard means that all health and social care information we produce for clients is put through rigorous procedures to ensure that it is accurate, impartial, up-to-date, evidence-based, well-written and accessible.
The Information Standard gives our health and social care information a seal of approval from the Royal Society for Public Health so clients know they can trust our written information and advice.
We hope to continue developing more easy-read information and advice leaflets to support and advise Gypsies and Travellers in all areas of health and social care.
