Medical Interpreting Services
National Health Service (NHS) is one of the largest institutions acting in the United Kingdom and naturally the need for NHS Interpreting Service is always a requirement and also a challenge for the government to ensure every patient is provided with an interpreter where needed. The NHS consists of many departments and offices, in which there are altogether more than 1,7 million of people hired. Due to the fact that United Kingdom constitutes one of the countries with the highest ratio of immigrants, it is a natural consequence that all NHS employees have regular contact with foreigners who don’t always speak English. In order to provide them with the best possible medical support, NHS must rely on professional translation and interpreting companies such as London Translation Services (LTS).
Highly Qualified and Best Trained NHS Interpreters
Usually all matters discussed during a doctor’s appointment are very personal and of a sensitive nature. Therefore it is extremely important that an interpreter who assists the patient and is present throughout the whole appointment is a trained professional who knows the appropriate way of conduct in certain situations.
LTS, having gained over a decade of professional experience, has developed an impressive database of interpreters in more than 265 languages including Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, BSL (British Sign Language), Cantonese, Czech, Dari, Farsi, French, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Mirpuri, Polish, Punjabi, Pushto, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Tamil, Urdu and many others.
