interpreting and translation services

interpreting and translation services

A general term for those services intended to facilitate effective communication between patients, carers and the agencies providing their health and social care. In the UK, such services may be deployed to improve the quality of communication in the context of providing healthcare and social services rather than expecting a patient’s family to become unnecessarily involved in the process.
