Interpretation services

We can book an interpreter to support:

  • people who do not speak English or do not speak it with confidence
  • people who communicate by sign language
  • when translation of written information (to or from English) is required.

Some interpreter services are available by telephone.

Interpreter services are also available for patients attending appointments via telephone or video calls (telehealth).

Please let the service or ward know as soon as possible if you want to use an interpreter, because it can take time to arrange one.
