Translation and Interpretation
We can provide language translation and interpretation support when you visit and contact us.
Tell our staff which language you prefer to use.
Our teams will find the right help for you during your assessment and treatment.
You can ask for language support when you visit us at hospital, and when we visit you at home.
Let your GP or carer know which language you prefer to use.
They will add this to your care record for other doctors and nurses to see.
