Translation services

If you are coming into the hospital and your first language is not English, you may need a translator to help you speak to doctors and nurses.  We can provide telephone interpreting services through The Big Word. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require assistance with this.

Patients who are undergoing a surgical procedure or a diagnostic procedure will need an independent interpreter and not a family member. We can organise this on your behalf but we will need to know beforehand, please call us on 0131 447 2340.
