NHS interior signage

All interior signage should adhere to the NHS Identity guidelines (i.e. font and colour palette).

NHS Blue and white are the predominant colours used and the font is either Frutiger or Arial.

The colour Emergency Services Red should be used for Accident and Emergency.

Signage should be as clear and simple as possible.  Visual styles, graphic devices and straplines should not be included.

Consider the needs of people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss when producing signage to ensure it is accessible e.g. text size, colour contrast, inclusion of braille, use of symbols and pictures.  The Accessible Information Standard provides further information on making health and social care information accessible.

Some of the examples featured across this site may have been amended to illustrate how the guidelines should be applied.
