Colour scheme

It is possible to change the colour scheme on this site using the buttons that appear in the top left-hand corner. The options available are (from left to right):

  1. white background
  2. grey background
  3. white text on a black background
  4. yellow text on a dark blue background

Changing the colour will not alter or obscure the content of the website itself. It will only change the way the information is displayed.



Double clicking on a video will make it full-screen. To return to the video to its original size double click on the screen again.

To watch a video with subtitles click the captions button (the one that looks like a tiny addressed envelope) on the menu bar that appears at the bottom of the video. If the menu bar is not visible move your cursor over the film to make it appear.    


Easy Read documents

To help ensure that Healthwatch is accessible to all members of the community, we have produced a pair of easy to read leaflets that describe what our organisation does in simple, straight-forward language.
