For patients>>Advice and support>>Interpreters


We have our own multi-lingual health advocacy service for patients who do not understand and speak English. This service is free and provides information, support and advice.

We can arrange for an interpreter to be present when you speak to your healthcare professionals. Our advocates can also advise hospital staff on any relevant cultural, religious or social issues. If you can, please telephone the administrator before you arrive to arrange assistance on tel 020 7377 7280.

Alternatively, contact your appropriate health advocate directly:

  • Bengali (Sylheti), Hindi and Urdu tel 020 7377 7326
  • Cantonese and Vietnamese tel 020 7377 7319
  • Somali tel 020 7377 7328
  • Turkish tel 020 7377 7355

If you’d like an interpreter for any other language, please let us know and we will try to help.
