Interpretation and translation

If you or your family member speaks little or no English and  would prefer things to be explained in a language you are more comfortable with, we can make arrangements for your hospital or clinic appointment.

We offer the following interpretation and translation services:

  • British sign language and lip-reading
  • Braille
  • Large print
  • Document translation into other languages
  • There is a translation button on this website at the bottom left of each page


If you need an interpreter or you know someone who does, please phone the clinic or ward that you are attending in advance so we can arrange the service you need. If you are being referred to the Trust by your GP, ask them to tell us you require an interpreter.

For more information about interpreting services, contact our patient experience team on 01704 704958.
