GW Pharmaceuticals recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. This page explains:

    • our approach to making this website accessible;
    • the facilities that we have provided for different disability groups;
    • guidance on how to use particular features;
    • what to do if you have any questions or feedback for us


    Partially Sighted Users - Text size

    The text on the website pages is scaleable so that it can be increased in size without affecting the sites appearance. The default text size for the site is approximately 10.5 points. To increase or decrease the text size, use the Text Size setting in the Internet Explorer View menu (at the top of the screen). The default setting is Medium. In browsers other than Internet Explorer, there will be a similar setting. For example, in Mozilla Firefox, select “View” from the menu bar, then “Text Size” and select from “Increase” to “Decrease”.

    Colour Blind Users - Colour

    The colours of the text and background contrast sufficiently to optimise legibility. We have checked the site font and background colour combinations for the different colour-blindness conditions and ensured that items are not referenced by colour alone. Should you wish to change the colour of text and background by introducing your own style sheet, please do the following: In Internet Explorer, select Tools, then Internet Options and then Accessibility. Next click on any or all of three checkboxes to ignore colours, font styles or font sizes. In the same window, you can change the style sheet by clicking the checkbox that says 'Format document using my style sheet', then simply browse to your preferred style sheet and click ok.

    Keyboard Only Users

    The web pages on the site have been tested for use in keyboard-only operation. When using the forms or controls for the tools, the keys to use are as follows:


    • To select from dropdown boxes, use up and down arrow keys;
    • To select/unselect a check box, use the space bar;
    • To move forward between links, use the tab key;
    • To move back between links, use the Shift + tab keys;
    • To initiate an action button, use the Enter key when the action button is selected.


    Screen reader / voice browser / screen magnifier users

    Our navigation mechanisms are accessible by screen readers and voice browsers.

    Text equivalents of all images have been provided and the relevant page and table header tags inserted.

    Alternative mechanisms have been provided where JavaScript is used within the site.

    Print page

    It is possible to print out each page in black and white without frames.


    All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes.
    Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
    All graphics are described with a short text summary, which you will see if you turn off graphics in your browser, or use a browser that does not display images.

    PDF files

    Files such as annual and interim reports, presentations and many press releases can be downloaded and/or printed out as PDF files. These files need a special piece of software to view called the Adobe® Acrobat Reader®, which can be downloaded from the Adobe® website
