Interpreter Services

If you need an interpreter when you see the GP or nurse you should inform the receptionist when you book an appointment. If you always require interpreter services, please let us know on your registration form and we will make sure than an alert is added to your record.

Please be aware that we will need several days notice to arrange an interpreter. We would therefore ask that you give us plenty of notice for an appointment. In the event that you need to be seen urgently, before an interpreter can be arranged, we will use internet translation services or the Red Cross Emergency Multilingual Phrasebook.

If you ask a relative to act as your translator, please ensure that you are confident that they will clearly communicate your symptoms to the GP or nurse.
