Accessibility

The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is committed to providing an accessible website and seeks to provide information and data in accessible formats such as HTML, text (.txt), accessible Word and accessible Excel.

Making the site more accessible is an ongoing process and improvements will continue as we further develop and refine the website.

If you cannot access information on the IHPA website please contact us to request another format.

To assist contractors, designers or anyone else working with IHPA in relation to content that will be published by IHPA, IHPA has created a Guide for Creating accessible Word documents for Consultants and Contractors 

IHPA works to ensure content is produced in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
