A local translation (interpreting) service is available free of charge for patients using GP and NHS hospital services in England. This also includes interpreting for people who are deaf or deaf/blind. A member of our reception team can arrange an interpreter for a consultation in the practice. For any hospital appointment contact the hospital department dealing with your treatment or appointment and they will arrange an interpreter.
Please let us know if you need interpreting help as soon as possible to make sure we can have an interpreter in place for your consultation at the practice (ideally this should be when you make the appointment at the practice).
We do not allow children to act as interpreters during any treatments or appointments at the practice.
