The Free Interpreting Service aims to provide equitable access to key services for people with limited or no English language proficiency.
If you or a family member require a translation service, we can organise this for you using the National Relay Service (NRS), Translations & Interpreter Service (TIS), National Auslan Interpreter Booking Service (NABS), etc.
They have credentialed interpreters to communicate complex or technical information to patients with limited or no English language proficiency. This can help to ensure accuracy of communication, reduce confusion, save time, and protect practitioners from professional risk. It is particularly important when:
- seeking informed consent
- dealing with patients in a crisis
- dealing with complexity
- assessing patient competence.
Please advise upon booking appointment if you require a translator.
