Talking your language
If you do not speak English and need to have an interpreter for your appointment, please ask someone who speaks English to telephone the ward or department you are visiting. This telephone number should be on your appointment letter.
Most interpreting is now done via the telephone on the ward or clinic. Only in exceptional circumstances will we offer a face to face interpreter.
If you have a disability which affects your ability to communicate please let us know. We are able to provide support such as a British Sign Language Interpreter and provide information in an alternative format if this is required.
