NHS Easyread Glossary

Source By: NHS England

NHS England has produced an Easy read glossary to help people with a learning disability, autism or both to understand some of the difficult words they may hear when they are seeking medical treatment.

NHS England worked with a self-advocacy who helped to check all words and pictures, and the list is designed to help people find out about words quickly.

The list can be used in two different ways:


  • For people with a learning disability involved in our work to be able to look up and understand the difficult words we use at NHS England

  • For NHS staff to be able to find easy ways to describe the work that they do, encouraging them to use more easy read pictures.

Find the list here and please share amongst your networks.
