About this website
Easyhealth was made so that people know where to find ‘accessible’ health information . ‘Accessible’ information is information that uses easy words with pictures.
There are over 500 leaflets on Easyhealth, made by many different organisations. You can print off nearly all the leaflets straight away.
Easyhealth is run by an organisation called Generate Opportunities Ltd.

‘Providing information in an accessible format is one of the easiest ‘reasonable adjustments’ a service can make. This can have the biggest impact on access to that service for people with learning disabilities, and their family and carers. Just log on and download the relevant flyer. It’s that simple!’
‘Mencap is pleased to be supporting the Easyhealth website. We think it is a fantastic resource for anyone looking to access clear, practical and easy to understand health information.
It’s extremely well thought-out design and use of varied information formats makes it accessible to a wide range of people, including hard to reach groups such as people with a learning disability.
We know that people with a learning disability in particular often experience poorer health and poorer healthcare than the general population, which makes Easyhealth’s role even more invaluable in helping enable people to make their own choices and decisions and have more control over their healthcare.
Resources such as this are vital if we are to achieve a more inclusive society.
We think Easyhealth is a shining example of what public information should be like, and will hopefully inspire the creation of more resources like it.’
