Health literacy survey finds support for health information producers is lacking

A Patient Information Forum (PiF) survey on health literacy has found that although information producers understand why clear, easy to understand and usable health information for the public is important, many are not equipped to meet the challenge.

PiF says this lack of support and guidance for producers could derail the government’s ambition for transforming information for the NHS, public health and social care.

The survey highlights the need for better support, training and guidance for organisations producing healthcare information.
