Accesskeys are keyboard shortcuts, they allow you to navigate the site more easily using your keyboard as opposed to your mouse. We have used the Accesskeys that are suggested by the NHS, most of which are numerical.

Hold down the ALT key, press the number of the access key, and then press ENTER.

 

Internet Explorer 4 (PC):

Hold down the ALT key and press the number of the access key.
